Episode 12: Fighting for Tribal Peoples w/ Stephen Corry
“The earth’s biodiversity depends [very directly] on its human diversity.”Stephen Corry
In this episode I chat with Stephen Corry, the former director of Survival International, a global organization that supports indigenous peoples in their struggles against colonialism. We talk about why the organization is important, and how it relates directly to rewilding. Stephen discusses the central myths of civilization and the prejudices that it generates in order to justify its destruction of tribal people. In the end our conversation lands on the problematic aspects of conservation, and the challenges that members of Survival International have faced in this work.
