Goldtooth in Copenhagen

I had to go to the Irish Times to find it, but the photo of Tom Goldtooth leading a cleansing ceremony for the UN climate change delegates made my day. Mr. Goldtooth, the designated spokesperson for the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change at last year’s UN gathering in Poland, is also director of the Indigenous Environmental Network. In addition to being a charming and eloquent speaker, Goldtooth is also an accomplished singer in his native tongue.
