Quotes

Stephen Corry said: "An important criteria when selecting the winning images was that they convey a fair and accurate picture, and do not falsify the appearance or behavior of their subjects. The range of high-quality entries from around the globe shows that it is possible to take stunning photographs of contemporary tribal peoples without resorting to portraying them as either 'brutal' or 'noble savages'."
...pave way for a proposed Gope Diamond Mine"; and in 2002, the Bushmen told Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples' rights, "Foreign Minister General Merafhe went to the reserve and told us we had to be moved because of diamonds."
...The Indians immediately contracted an acute respiratory infection for which they were treated. Survival's Director Stephen Corry said today, "Missionaries insisting on clothing 'naked savages' is the most enduring metaphor for the colonial destruction of tribal peoples. Clothes can not only carry disease, they can make illness worse for people with no tradition of wearing them. Indians too sick to hunt risk sitting around in perpetually damp and unwashed clothes which can exacerbate the infections which have already killed millions of Indians in the Americas. That this is still happening today is a crime which must be stopped. If Peru doesn't ban tourists and people like this missionary from going anywhere near the uncontacted Indians, its government risks complicity in the annihilation of yet another Indian people." - to authorities in Peru and Brazil urging them to protect the land of uncontacted tribes
"Peru is totally ill-equipped to deal with this urgent situation, and it appears to be doing very little to prepare itself for the potentially catastrophic (for the Mashco-Piro) situation that first contact is likely to lead to" she added
