Product Description

The book Scent of Rain, Sun and Soil, compiled by Sarah Wright, is an attempt to push back against the government’s long and intensive efforts to obliterate Lumad communities in order to give way to multinational and/or foreign-owned mining, logging, and industrial agriculture operations. A collection of poems, testimonials, and photographs from CTCSM’s students and staff, the book illustrates how the Lumad, through organic agroecology, meet the challenges not only of living sustainably, but of simply surviving in this country. The book demonstrates how CTCSM students learn and practice organic agroecology within the campus and how these lessons carry over to caring for the Lumad communities in general. For these indigenous youth, attending CTCSM is demanding their rights to basic social services like education, health, and peace. It is also asserting their right to live on the land, to be recognized as individuals and communities
