About this product
- DescriptionA century ago, the idea of indigeus people as an active force in the contemporary world was unthinkable. It was assumed that native societies everywhere would be swept away by the forward march of the West and its own peculiar brand of progress and civilization. Nothing could be further from the truth. Indigeus social movements wield new power, and groups as diverse as Australian Aborigines, Ecuadorian Quichuas, and New Zealand Maoris, have found their own distinctive and assertive ways of living in the present world. Indigeus Experience Today draws together essays by prominent scholars in anthropology and other fields examining the varied face of indigeus politics in Bolivia, Botswana, Canada, Chile, China, Indonesia, and the United States, amongst others. The book challenges accepted tions of indigeneity as it examines the transnational dynamics of contemporary native culture and politics around the world.
