William Milliken from Kew Gardens looks at indigenous peoples’ changing relationship with the extraordinary biodiversity of the Amazon through time and the implications for the future.

Indigenous peoples have been basing their livelihoods on the extraordinary biodiversity of the Amazon for over a thousand years. Changes in population, technology and external pressure on land resources have all played major roles in shaping their lives and the forest in which they live.

Drawing on his personal experience among Amazonian indigenous societies, case studies, historical records and accounts, William Milliken explores the changing nature of this relationship and its implications for the future.
