About this product
- DescriptionGoverning Indigeus Territories illuminates a paradox of modern indigeus lives. In recent decades, native peoples from Alaska to Cameroon have sought and gained legal title to significant areas of land, t as individuals or families but as large, collective organizations. Obtaining these collective titles represents an ermous accomplishment; it also creates dramatic changes. Once an indigeus territory is legally established, other governments and organizations expect it to act as a unified political entity, making decisions on behalf of its population and managing those living within its borders. A territorial government must mediate between outsiders and a t-always-united population within a context of constantly shifting global development priorities. The people of Rukullakta, a large indigeus territory in Ecuador, have struggled to enact sovereignty since the late 1960s. Drawing broadly applicable lessons from their experiences of self-rule, Juliet S. Erazo shows how collective titling produces new expectations, obligations, and subjectivities within indigeus territories.
