Indigenous Voices: Cover Image Explained

Two boys are perched: one is using his hand to take a more focused glimpse at us; the other is peering through a plastic, manufactured, object. These are the indigenous peoples of Northern Thailand. Metaphorically speaking, generation-by-generation, how much longer will it be before the boy on the right becomes wholly plugged into and engulfed [...]

Becoming a Global Citizen: A Journey of World Environment

It was 1976 when I first opened my eyes to Hibbing, Minnesota. Although my hometown was once a bustling community known for ethnic diversity as well as its industrial and social related advancements, it now exists as a quiet semi-rural place similar to many other American communities.

“Dignity” (comes) to the Mae Sot dump community…

On April 6, 2014 (at sunset), Ashin Sopaka and I returned to the community living on the Mae Sot Rubbish dump, after the four years it's taken to produce Dignity Amidst the Rubbish: Hour by Hour with a Burmese Migrant Community in Thailand, and showed the book to members of the community. It was a [...]

Mae Sot Madness: Busting Up Foundations of Greed

As I glided to a near stop while approaching a stoplight in Mae Sot, Thailand, dense thudding sounds took over my conscious mind. A group of men (likely Burmese migrants) were busting up a former concrete structure, essentially barehanded, and likely still are as I write this — one blow at at a time.  Thud! [...]
