Suriname’s indigenous peoples portrayed in 124 photographs

Witness Suriname’s indigenous current way of living, from city life in its capital Paramaribo to life in the Amazonian rain forest. 

Experience the various aspects of indigenous life in the South American nation of Suriname.  From traditional living in the Amazonian rainforest to city-life in the melting pot of its capital city, Paramaribo.  Become a witness to the inauguration of a new chief,  a lifeguard watching over bathers,  a representative of the indigenous peoples at the UN, women harvesting palm fruit in the rainforest, children swimming in a wild river,  and a newlywed couple’s first kiss.
