Abstract Traveling the world, photographer Phil Borges documents endangered cultures with the hope that he can help preserve them by photographing and interviewing members of them. In this TEDTalk, Borges shows rarely seen images of people from the mountains of Dharamsala, India, and the jungles of the Ecuadorean Amazon, as he tells their stories. In addition, Borges talks about his initiative to link children in indigenous communities from across the globe with students in the U.S. to promote understanding and peace.
