Many tribal groups around the world are facing immediate cultural and even physical extinction either as a result of current threats or previous destruction. This book covers the general historical pattern in which the tribal way of life has been disrupted. It then focuses on five specific endangered cultures: the Yanomami of the Amazon Jungle in Brazil and Venezuela; the San (Bushmen) of the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa; the Bambuti (African pygmies) of the Ituri Forest in Zaire, Central Africa; the Aborigines of Australia; and the Inuit (Eskimo) of the Arctic and Subarctic.
