Indigenous Knowledge
Sarah Johnson (ed), Themes in Environmental History 3, The White Horse Press, 2012 | ISBN: 978-1-874267-68-3

This book investigates how indigenous peoples from various cultures interact with, and conceptualize their environments, past and present. It offers accounts of indigenous conservation practices and traditional environmental knowledge, alongside challenging explorations of how knowledge is filtered through ideologies and subjectivities, from the Western scientific worldview to individual memory. Chapters address case studies in several parts of the world, under the following sections: defining indigeneity; indigenous conservation, beliefs and practices; indigenous subjectivities, perception, myth, memory; and cultural collisions and competing knowledges.
