Description - Native on the Net by Kyra Landzelius
Internet technology is transforming the lives of disenfranchised and politically marginalized people around the world - Tongas, Inuits, Native Amazonians, Hopi Indians and, most notoriously, the Zapatistas of Mexico. Crossing physical and political borders and working in a virtual space that evades policing, the web is used especially to broadcast alternative political agendas, but also for web discussion and online networking that creates new forms of protest, community and solidarity. Going Native on the Net goes on-site to explore at first hand the lives and agendas of the indigenous and diasporic people who seek change through the internet, and who use it to subvert power structures of globalisation, nation state and multinationalism. Case studies come from Europe, the Pacific, Central and South America, the Carribean, Native North America, Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia and South Asia.
