Conservation Through Cultural Survival Indigenous Peoples And Protected Areas by Stanley F. Stevens

Conservation Through Cultural Survival Indigenous Peoples And Protected Areas


Conservation Through Cultural Survival Indigenous Peoples And Protected Areas by Stanley F. Stevens

For more than a century the creation of national parks and protected areas was a major threat to the survival of indigenous peoples. Parks based on wilderness ideals outlawed traditional ways of life and forced from their homelands peoples who had shaped and preserved local ecosystems for centuries. Conservation Through Cultural Survival chronicles and assesses cutting-edge efforts to establish new kinds of parks and protected areas that are based on partnerships with indigenous peoples. It provides detailed case studies from Nepal, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua, Honduras, Canada, and Alaska, and offers guidelines, models, and recommendations for international action.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
