About the Edition

The Forest Within gives a detailed portrait of how an aboriginal tribe of the remote Amazonian region understands the cosmic dimensions of its partnership with the rainforest. The author explores the world-view of the Tukano Indians: their view of the forest as part of the cosmos; the Master (Spirit Guardian) of the Animals; their complex and multi-dimensional bond with their environment; and their social and sexual restrictions in order to achieve ecological sustainability.
