Gloria Elizabeth Chacón Indigenous Cosmolectics. Kab.awil and the Making of Maya and Zapotec Literatures

Latin America's Indigenous writers have long labored under the limits of colonialism, but in the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, they have constructed a literary corpus that moves them beyond those parameters. Gloria E. Chacon considers the growing number of contemporary Indigenous writers who turn to Maya and Zapotec languages alongside Spanish translations of their work to challenge the tyranny of monolingualism and cultural homogeneity. Chacon argues that these Maya and Zapotec authors reconstruct an Indigenous literary tradition rooted in an Indigenous cosmolectics, a philosophy originally grounded in pre-Columbian sacred conceptions of the cosmos, time, and place, and now expressed in creative writings. More specifically, she attends to Maya and Zapotec literary and cultural forms by theorizing kab'awil as an Indigenous philosophy. Tackling the political and literary implications of this work, Chacon argues that Indigenous writers' use of familiar genres alongside Indigenous language, use of oral traditions, and new representations of selfhood and nation all create space for expressions of cultural and political autonomy. Chacon recognizes that Indigenous writers draw from universal literary strategies but nevertheless argues that this literature is a vital center for reflecting on Indigenous ways of knowing and is a key artistic expression of decolonization.

Emilio del Valle Escalante Teorizando las literaturas indigenas contemporaneas

The introduction and eight chapters in English and Spanish that make up "Teorizando las literaturas indígenas contemporáneas" examine the textual production of indigenous authorship. The authors start from the nineties and problematize the relationship between Indigenous People and nation-state in Guatemala, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, and Brazil. It is one of the book's suggestions that current indigenous movements and their demands can be best understood through a critique of textual production of its organic intellectuals. While much has been written about the activities of the social movements and current indigenous textual production, there is still the need for a book that contextualizes what has enabled the emergence of a contemporary indigenous literary canon and its relationship to those social movements. This book aims to fill some of these gaps.

Dipendra Gautam Water Management through Indigenous Knowledge. A Case of Historic Settlement of Bhaktapur City, Nepal

Techno-Anthropological approach has been formulated in researching a traditional settlement of Bhaktapur City, Nepal. The practices of indigenous people have been analyzed by juxtaposing the science along with the indigenous technology. It has been significantly concluded that, the impetus behind the city sustainability is primarily the indigenous knowledge and sometimes this knowledge is overwhelming to even the modern scientific aspects too. Indigenous technology of water management in the historic city of Bhaktapur has been also found to be significant not only in terms of supply rather in terms of quality of water too. The reusability of water resources has given an excellent paradigm even to the modern approaches too. The lifestyle in terms of culture and religion has been associated with water for this city, and water management is also facilitated through cultural practices and religious establishments. A city regarded as 'City of Devotees' has disseminated a remarkable approach for the water management by keeping aside the modern scientific approaches. The city was established in the 13th century and practices are continuously adopted since then as indigenous practices through unrelenting trial and error, the indigenous technology of water management has been found to be rational hence revitalization of some components might be more energy efficient and economic for present day water scarcity solution in the city

Recirculating Songs. Revitalising the singing practices of Indigenous Australia

This is the first volume devoted specifically to the revitalisation of ancestral Indigenous singing practices in Australia. These traditions are at severe risk in many parts of Australia, and this work investigates the geographical, theoretical and methodological strategies currently being implemented to reverse the damage. In some areas the ancestral musical culture is still transmitted across the generations; in others it is partially remembered, and being revitalised with the assistance of heritage recordings and written documentation; but in many parts of Australia, the transmission of songs has been interrupted, and in those places revitalisation relies on research and restoration. This book provides helpful insights for Indigenous people and communities, researchers and educators and anyone interested in song and Indigenous Australia.

Odey Robert The Imperative of Promoting, Developing and Sustaining Indigenous Music in Nigeria

Scientific Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Sociology - Media, Art, Music, Ebonyi State University (New Frontier Ind. Research and Publications Int'l, Makurdi, Benue, Nigeria), language: English, abstract: Until very recently, Nigerian indigenous music was silenced by its Western counterpart, following westernisation, globalisation and attrition. Music is cultural. And all Nigerian cultures have their respective music. Despite the recent promotion, development and sustenance bids of several artists, scholars and concerned authorities, the teeming Nigerian masses are yet to be roused towards and properly educated, sensitised and re-oriented on and towards indigenous music. It is against the above backdrop that this study has emerged to call for a change in these regards. The paper maintains that it is imperative to properly, constantly and adequately promote, develop and sustain our indigenous music so as to project our indigenous music, create a place for it in the globalised Western hostile village, and allow for culture continuity and national development. Music unites people(s) and allows for the showcasing of cultural identity, ethos and aesthetics. Therefore, to duly tap from the potentials/prospects of indigenous music, it is imperative to incessantly promote, develop and sustain indigenous music in Nigeria and beyond. This study is anchored on music and indigenous wholistic theories that are most suitable for it, following its nature and pursuit. It relied o...

Lorenzo Veracini Israel And Settler Society

The struggle between Israel and the Palestinians is not unique, whatever the media may suggest. Lorenzo Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism, as like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking at the evolution of other colonial regimes - apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia - Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism. He challenges two important myths: firstly, that the Israeli-Palestinian dispute is unique and defies comparative approaches; and secondly that the struggle is mainly based in nationality and religion and therefore different to typical colonial conflicts. Comparing and contrasting 'official' apartheid regimes with the more recent history of Israel and Palestine, he offers a critical perspective on colonialism as well as important new insights into patterns of imperialism today.

Stephen Anebere The Difficulty Between the Energy Companies and the Indigenous Peoples

The exploration and development of natural resources of sovereign states is often carried out by multinational oil companies or in most cases in conjunction with the host state. At the start of the exploration period, it may be impracticable to relocate the indigenous peoples living in communities where explorations are carried out. However, these people live to witness different negative impacts as a result of the activities and operations of the companies. This has heralded a difficult relationship between several indigenous peoples and multinational oil corporations in different countries. This book, therefore, uses a case study of two selected indigenous peoples in both Nigeria and Peru to provide new ways of applying corporate social responsibility to bring an exciting relationship

Gadziro Gwekwerere Shona Traditional Games

This book examines the nature of indigenous knowledge portrayed in Shona traditional games and how it can be used towards child development. Foreign influence apparently made many people to despise African cultures in general, hence the need to prove that African indigenous knowledge, as is seen in Shona indigenous games, is useful. Some indigenous knowledge has continued to exist in its original form while some has vanished or changed with time. There are several clusters of knowledge that can either be scientific, modern or indigenous. Indigenous knowledge refers to local knowledge existing within and developed around the specific conditions of individuals, indigenous to a particular geographical location and passed on to the next generation through oral tradition. The first section of the book deals with indigenous knowledge and a general overview of the Shona people of Zimbabwe. The second, third and fourth sections of this book deal with the nature and structure of African games and their contribution towards child development. Selected Shona traditional musical and non musical games are presented for analysis.

Jace Weaver The Red Atlantic. American Indigenes and the Making of the Modern World, 1000-1927

From the earliest moments of European contact, Native Americans have played a pivotal role in the Atlantic experience, yet they often have been relegated to the margins of the region's historical record. The Red Atlantic, Jace Weaver's sweeping and highly readable survey of history and literature, synthesizes scholarship to place indigenous people of the Americas at the center of our understanding of the Atlantic world. Weaver illuminates their willing and unwilling travels through the region, revealing how they changed the course of world history.Indigenous Americans, Weaver shows, crossed the Atlantic as royal dignitaries, diplomats, slaves, laborers, soldiers, performers, and tourists. And they carried resources and knowledge that shaped world civilization--from chocolate, tobacco, and potatoes to terrace farming and suspension bridges. Weaver makes clear that indigenous travelers were cosmopolitan agents of international change whose engagement with other societies gave them the tools to advocate for their own sovereignty even as it was challenged by colonialism.

Thomas Johansen Petroleum and Indigenous People in the Arctic

This book examines the challenges presented by indigenous people for oil and gas companies in the Arctic, and opportunities for their successful coexistence. The new prospect for the Barents Sea expressed in Norway's High North Strategy (2006) could make this area the most industrialized in the Arctic. The Arctic is also a homeland for many different indigenous people, with over 40 different languages, and the native people say the North is their homeland. The investigation primarily addresses the following research question: What are the challenges with indigenous people for the oil and gas industry working in the Arctic? For the purpose of gaining insight and building a holistic picture of the complexities of these challenges, we have gathered data from several different disciplines including international law, indigenous culture, society and economy in the Arctic, and biology. The book proposes several opportunities that oil and gas companies may take in order to protect these distinct ways of life and reduce adverse impacts from operational discharges, tankers and pipelines.

Rebecca Overmyer-Velazquez Folkloric Poverty. Neoliberal Multiculturalism in Mexico

The "technocratic revolution" that ushered in the age of neoliberalism in Mexico under the presidency of Carlos Salinas (1988-1994) helped create the conditions for, and the constraints on, a resurgence of activism among the indigenous communities of Mexico. This resurgence was given further impetus by the protests in 1992 against the official celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of Columbus's landing in America and by the Zapatista uprising in Chiapas in 1994. Local, regional, and national indigenous organizations formed to pursue a variety of causes-cultural, economic, legal, political, and social-to benefit Indian peoples in all regions of the country. Folkloric Poverty analyzes the crisis these indigenous political groups faced in Mexico at the turn of the twenty-first century. It tells the story of an indigenous peoples' movement in the state of Guerrero, the Consejo Guerrerense 500 Años de Resistencia Indígena, that gained unprecedented national and international prominence in the 1990s and yet was defunct by 2002. The fate of the Consejo points to the ways that Mexican multiculturalism‚ indigenismo, combined with neoliberal reforms to keep Indians in a political quarantine, effectively limiting their actions and safely isolating their demands on the state.

Tatiana Bulgakova Nanai Shamanic Culture in Indigenous Discourse

This book on Nanai shamanic culture is based on first-hand information provided by shamans and recorded in the years between 1980 and 2012, a time of rapid socio-cultural change in Russia. It sheds light on the lively indigenous discourse in which social factors such as the splitting of society into different paternal lineages relates to spiritual troubles that Nanai people experience as collective 'shamanic disease.' But inter-clan confrontations are not only mediated in shamanic rituals, as these must not be separated from folk narratives, dances and other forms of art. Furthermore, the book provides profound insights into the plurality of contradictory discourses on indigenous knowledge as well as those delivered in non-indigenous contexts. The latter arose or became more intense in the Soviet and post-Soviet periods, and often led to experiments in new shamanic practices.

Heidi Moksnes Maya Exodus. Indigenous Struggle for Citizenship in Chiapas

An intimate view of Catholic Maya's fight for their rights as citizens of Mexico Maya Exodus offers a richly detailed account of how a group of indigenous people has adopted a global language of human rights to press claims for social change and social justice. Anthropologist Heidi Moksnes describes how Catholic Maya in the municipality of Chenalhó in Chiapas, Mexico, have changed their position vis-à-vis the Mexican state-from being loyal clients dependent on a patron, to being citizens who have rights-as a means of exodus from poverty. Moksnes lived in Chenalhó in the mid-1990s and has since followed how Catholic Maya have adopted liberation theology and organized a religious and political movement to both advance their sociopolitical position in Mexico and restructure local Maya life. She came to know members of the Catholic organization Las Abejas shortly before they made headlines when forty-five members, including women and children, were killed by Mexican paramilitary troops because of their sympathy with the Zapatistas. In the years since the massacre at Acteal, Las Abejas has become a global symbol of indigenous pacifist resistance against state oppression. The Catholic Maya in Chenalhó see their poverty as a legacy of colonial rule perpetuated by the present Mexican government, and believe that their suffering is contrary to the will of God. Moksnes shows how this antagonism toward the state is exacerbated by the government's recent neoliberal policies, whic...

Michael L Hart Wilderness Empire. A Story of the Iroquois Confederacy

This is a story of the rise and fall of the wilderness empire of the Iroquois Confederacy. This is a story of powerful Indigenous confederacies and alliances, and the struggles for territory and dominance between Indigenous coalitions and the empirical powers of the Netherlands, France, and Britain in eastern North America. Central to this story are the five tribes of the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca. Centuries before Europeans found their way to eastern North America, the five tribes accepted the message of the Great Binding Law brought by the Peacemaker, declared an armistice among themselves, and became known as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. This is a story of how the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, later known as the Iroquois Confederacy, won a wilderness empire through military power and political prowess. This is also the story of how, confronted by overwhelming pressure from European encroachment, the Iroquois fell from princes of wilderness empire to refugees in their ancestral lands. This is a story of intelligent military strategy and bold diplomacy of Indigenous leaders that altered the history of European empires and shaped the cultural and political landscape of present-day eastern North America. The story of Wilderness Empire is a timely book release in this year of celebration of Canada's 150th birthday.

Tharoor Shashi Inglorious Empire. What the British Did to India

The Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller on India's experience of British colonialism, by the internationally-acclaimed author and diplomat Shashi Tharoor 'Tharoor's impassioned polemic slices straight to the heart of the darkness that drives all empires ... laying bare the grim, and high, cost of the British Empire for its former subjects. An essential read' Financial Times In the eighteenth century, India's share of the world economy was as large as Europe's. By 1947, after two centuries of British rule, it had decreased six-fold. The Empire blew rebels from cannon, massacred unarmed protesters, entrenched institutionalised racism, and caused millions to die from starvation. British imperialism justified itself as enlightened despotism for the benefit of the governed, but Shashi Tharoor takes demolishes this position, demonstrating how every supposed imperial 'gift' - from the railways to the rule of law - was designed in Britain's interests alone. He goes on to show how Britain's Industrial Revolution was founded on India's deindustrialisation, and the destruction of its textile industry. In this bold and incisive reassessment of colonialism, Tharoor exposes to devastating effect the inglorious reality of Britain's stained Indian legacy.

Tamuka Charles Chirimambowa The Rise and Fall of the Indigenous Business Development Center in Zimbabwe

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: "70", University of KwaZulu-Natal, language: English, abstract: Economic reform has become one of the major necessities of post-colonial African states, given years of slavery, apartheid, colonialism and underdevelopment. Many scholars have argued that Africa's lack of development is due to the lack of African participation within the economic sphere, especially as a business class or 'bourgeoisie'. They contend that African participation in business has been rare, and where granted it has been mostly within the peripheries or petty commerce. This study will investigate Zimbabwe's IBDC with a view to going some way to answering the major question that arises out of this argument: is creating a nationalist indigenous entrepreneurial class the answer to Africa's development problems? The focus of this study will be on the emergence of the IBDC as a vehicle for black empowerment. It will attempt to account for its successes, its failures, and its ultimate demise. The research will also chart how some of Zimbabwe's most successful black entrepreneurs, some who have managed to establish a global presence, got their start with this organization, and how they proceeded when the IBDC ceased to exist.The study will also proceed to examine the Indigenous Business Women's Organization and the Affirmative Action Group, similar organisations that...

Nitin Sinha Communication and Colonialism in Eastern India. Bihar, 1760s-1880s

Through a regional focus on Bihar between the 1760s and 1880s, 'Communication and Colonialism in Eastern India' reveals the shifting and contradictory nature of the colonial state's policies and discourses on communication. The volume explores the changing relationship between trade, transport and mobility in India, as evident in the trading and mercantile networks operating at various scales of the economy. Of crucial importance to this study are the ways in which knowledge about roads and routes was collected through practices of travel, tours, surveys, and map-making, all of which benefited the state in its attempts to structure a regime that would regulate 'undesirable' forms of mobility.

This work examines the reconstruction of cultural and historical myths by selected postcolonial writers of fiction from Indigenous Australia and South Africa. It explores summarily how these myths were used to define the colonial space, define the indigenes and how they in turn have chosen to define and represent themselves in a post-colonial world. This work also brings the postcolonialism debate back to the table by exploring its implications in using the theory to examine indigenous works of literature. The prodominant concerns of this work are Representation and Historiography situated within the context of postcolonialism. The achievement of this work is one of the canonical expansions recommended by postcolonial criticism which stresses the need for and the appreciation of differences that exist in postcolnial fictions even when they seek to achieve the same goals.

Language of the Land. Policy, Politics, Identity (PB)

The idea for this volume arose out of a need for a treatment of the interplay between language andethnonationalism within both formal and nonformal educational settings. In no way intended to beexhaustive in scope, the contents give the reader a critical overview of issues related to language, culturalidentity formation, and ethnonationalism. The chapters within this work deal with the effects ofdifferent language groups with differing amounts of power within society coming into contact withone another, and provide insight into how language is both utilized by and affected by processes suchas colonialism, post-colonialism, acculturation, and ethnonationalism. Language is central to culture-indeed houses cultural understandings and allows generational transfer of key aspects of agroup's heritage.

Kenneth Omeje The Crises of Postcoloniality in Africa

The Crises of Postcoloniality in Africa is an assemblage of transdisciplinary essays that offer a spirited reflection on the debate and phenomenon of postcoloniality in Africa, including the changing patterns and ramifications of problems, challenges and opportunities associated with it. A key conceptual rhythm that runs through the various chapters of the book is that, far from being demised, postcoloniality is still firmly embedded in Africa, manifesting itself in both blatant and insidious forms. Among the important themes covered in the book include the concepts of postcolonialism, postcoloniality, and neocolonialism; Africa’s precolonial formations and the impact of colonialism; the enduring patterns of colonial legacies in Africa; the persistent contradictions between African indigenous institutions and western versions of modernity; the unravelling of the postcolonial state and issues of armed conflict, conflict intervention and peacebuilding; postcolonial imperialism in Africa and the US-led global war on terror, the historical and postcolonial contexts of gender relations in Africa, as well as pan-Africanism and regionalist approaches to redressing the crises of postcoloniality.

Patrick Schmitz The aspect of healing in the poetry of Gregory Scofield, Marilyn Dumont, Roo Borson and Louise Bernice Halfe

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, RWTH Aachen University, language: English, abstract: I write to heal" (Scofield Gathering 821), "writing became my medicine" (Halfe Bear 1272), "be healed through creative expression" (Payne 1353), "he writes us weapons and shields, weaves us blankets" (Driskill 2224), "Indigenous writers (...) narrate Indigenous experiences under colonialism in an effort to heal" (Episkenew 15). Native literature - be it a poem, a drama, a novel or research literature - brims over with allusions as to why Native writers mostly intend to write, to compose and to publish: to tell the truth, to spread their culture, to strengthen their identity, to empower and find themselves, to unite, to change, to resist, to reanimate. But nearly every reason and method to do so ultimately starts and ends with an attempt to heal. Many Native and Métis authors for example write about their own lives, experiences and emotions - say about the loss of a beloved person - to cure their own "soul wound[s]" (Episkenew 5). Some process the history or widespread problems of many Natives to treat the wounds of their whole community caused by alcohol, rape and exclusion. They attempt to heal "injuries that colonialism and racism had inflicted" (1) e.g. by telling the Natives' history from their own perspective, a 'history from below' in the manner of speaking. In this t...

Julia Honds The protection of traditional indigenous knowledge by intellectual property law

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2006 in the subject Law - Comparative Legal Systems, Comparative Law, grade: A-, Victoria University of Wellington (Faculty of Law), 47 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Indigenous people often know a lot about the healing properties or other useful characteristics of their indigenous plants. This knowledge usually has been passed on within the indigenous community from generation to generation and is therefore regarded as traditional knowledge. This traditional knowledge is of great value for the pharmaceutical industry. Accordingly, it has been explored, used as the basis for subsequently patented in-ventions, and sometimes misappropriated by pharmaceutical companies from the "developed" world.This essay seeks to provide an overview of the problems and issues that arise where traditional knowl-edge meets the "Western" intellectual property regime. The questions that are sought to be answered are: Why should traditional knowledge be protected as intellectual property and how could this be done? Many approaches have been made, both on an international and a national level. Several of these solutions will be presented and discussed in this essay. It will be seen that already existing intellectual property rights are not suitable for the protection of traditional knowledge. Compared with this, the implementation of safeguards within patent applica-tion proceedings seems to be more appropriate a...

Indian Conquistadors. Indigenous Allies in the Conquest of Mesoamerica

Reassesses the first invasion of the New World The conquest of the New World would hardly have been possible if the invading Spaniards had not allied themselves with the indigenous population. This book takes into account the role of native peoples as active agents in the Conquest through a review of new sources and more careful analysis of known but under-studied materials that demonstrate the overwhelming importance of native allies in both conquest and colonial control. In Indian Conquistadors, leading scholars offer the most comprehensive look to date at native participation in the conquest of Mesoamerica. The contributors examine pictorial, archaeological, and documentary evidence spanning three centuries, including little-known eyewitness accounts from both Spanish and native documents, paintings (lienzos) and maps (mapas) from the colonial period, and a new assessment of imperialism in the region before the Spanish arrival. This new research shows that the Tlaxcalans, the most famous allies of the Spanish, were far from alone. Not only did native lords throughout Mesoamerica supply arms, troops, and tactical guidance, but tens of thousands of warriors-Nahuas, Mixtecs, Zapotecs, Mayas, and others-spread throughout the region to participate with the Spanish in a common cause. By offering a more balanced account of this dramatic period, this book calls into question traditional narratives that emphasize indigenous peoples' roles as auxiliaries rather than as conquista...

Stephanie Wood Transcending Conquest. Nahua Views of Spanish Colonial Mexico

Columbus arrived on North American shores in 1492, and Cortés had replaced Moctezuma, the Aztec Nahua emperor, as the major figurehead in central Mexico by 1521. Five centuries later, the convergence of "old" and "new" worlds and the consequences of colonization continue to fascinate and horrify us. In Transcending Conquest, Stephanie Wood uses Nahuatl writings and illustrations to reveal Nahua perspectives on Spanish colonial occupation of the Western Hemisphere.Mesoamerican peoples have a strong tradition of pictorial record keeping, and out of respect for this tradition, Wood examines multiple examples of pictorial imagery to explore how Native manuscripts have depicted the European invader and colonizer. She has combed national and provincial archives in Mexico and visited some of the Nahua communities of central Mexico to collect and translate Native texts. Analyzing and interpreting changes in indigenous views and attitudes throughout three hundred years of foreign rule, Wood considers variations in perspectives--between the indigenous elite and the laboring classes, and between those who resisted and those who allied themselves with the European intruders.Transcending Conquest goes beyond the familiar voices recorded by scribes in central colonial Mexico and the Spanish conquerors to include indigenous views from the outlying Mesoamerican provinces and to explore Native historical narratives from the sixteenth through the eighteenth century.

Judith Sierra-Rivera Affective Intellectuals and the Space of Catastrophe in the Americas

In her groundbreaking Affective Intellectuals and the Space of Catastrophe in the Americas, Judith Sierra-Rivera studies five different contexts of crisis: natural disasters in Mexico, forced displacements between Central America and the United States, a whitewashed transition to democracy in Chile, colonialism and wars in Puerto Rico, and racism and patriarchy in Cuba. All of these scenarios share the common ground of the neoliberal space of catastrophe, which also generates new groups and forms of resistance. Affective Intellectuals argues that a new kind of intellectual emerges from these contemporary configurations to speak and act guided by the stories and desires of those who have been systematically pushed out of the public sphere: indigenous peoples, Afro-descendants, immigrants, LGBTQ sexualities, and inhabitants of poverty. Pursuing this argument, Sierra-Rivera examines print, radio, and web materials by authors whose emotional discourses have also had a measurable impact on the formation of communities that demand their full political inclusion in society. This book therefore fills a significant gap in the study of the relationship between materiality (space and bodies), emotions, and the political imagination. Affective Intellectuals demonstrates that writers and intellectuals themselves are vital in reshaping their communities and fighting for social justice in the Hemispheric Americas.
Effigies III Effigies III Новинка

Effigies III

The Effigies series has woven a vibrant tapestry of indigenous poets from Native North America and the Pacific. As the third in this series, this anthology continues this weaving with the work of four emerging Pacific islander women poets from Guam, Hawai’i, and Fiji. Despite their distant origins, all these writers explore culture, history, politics, genealogy, feminism, and the environment. They each have their own unique style, ranging from the lyric to the avant-garde. Overall, they represent the next resurgent wave of empowered and decolonial Pacific writers.No‘u Revilla (Kanaka ‘Ōiwi), Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio (Kanaka ‘Ōiwi), Kisha Borja-Quichocho-Calvo (Chamoru), and Tagi Quolouvaki (Fijian, Tongan) take readers into the vast Pacific ocean to swim beyond the reef in high tide, out to where the water meets the sky, only to circle back to the islands to taste the tears and sweat in coconut and guava, the smell of frangipani on the wind. Amidst such beauty, these poets also carry us into darkness with tremendous power and vulnerability, laying bare the ravages of colonialism—the brutal occupation of country, the violence waged against Native women and girls, the erosion of language and ancestral memory, and the forced disconnections from land, ocean, and other healing lifeways. Effigies III features four debut books that fearlessly journey through these home-islands in ways that will transform and empower.

Chris Hesketh Spaces of Capital/Spaces of Resistance. Mexico and the Global Political Economy

Based on original fieldwork in Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico, this book offers a bridge between geography and historical sociology. Chris Hesketh examines the production of space within the global political economy. Drawing on multiple disciplines, Hesketh's discussion of state formation in Mexico takes us beyond the national level to explore the interplay between global, regional, national, and sub-national articulations of power. These are linked through the novel deployment of Antonio Gramsci's concept of passive revolution, understood as the state-led institution or expansion of capitalism that prevents the meaningful participation of the subaltern classes.Furthermore, the author brings attention to the conflicts involved in the production of space, placing particular emphasis on indigenous communities and movements and their creation of counterspaces of resistance. Hesketh argues that indigenous movements are now the leading social force of popular mobilization in Latin America. The author reveals how the wider global context of uneven and combined development frames these specific indigenous struggles, and he explores the scales at which they must now seek to articulate themselves.

Tribal Wisdom for Business Ethics

Long before Columbus, American Indians had trading routes all across the Americas. How did they maintain this extensive network of trading relationships through the centuries? In this ground-breaking book, leading native and non-native scholars present a fascinating view of American Indian tribal values and indigenous cultures. This 'Tribal Wisdom' offers an ethic of business practice that is relationship-based and community-oriented, fostering a harmonious web of life which includes the natural environment. Many of these traditions have shaped daily conduct in business and personal life among Native Americans for centuries and today the wider business world could find use from relating these tribal values to both ethics and sustainability. Indigenous values incorporate a world-view which recognizes that the natural environment is alive and living a life as important as, and also essential to, human well-being. This indigenous sense of "relationship" begins with the relationship between humans and the natural environment, and then extends to the relationships between and among people. For this reason, indigenous American Indian values embody the very essence of sustainability.

Wonder Guchu The Gods Sleep Through It All. A collection of essays

It has been said before that Africa is one of the richest continents in the world but the poorest and colonialism was blamed for Africa's problems before the continent was liberated. Although some leaders still blame colonialism for the poverty that is ravaging the continent today, it cannot be denied that poor governance, corruption, greed among many other ills are causing Africa's current problems. The essays in this collection The Gods Sleep Through It All discusses Africa's leadership problems and how most countries still rely on former colonisers for help despite boasting of untold natural wealth. The essays discuss the corruption of political parties and politics in Africa and question why African countries readily open their arms to countries like China but close borders to people from other African countries.

Vapi Ncumisa Oral Literature. Harmony and Didacticism in AmaXhosa Indigenous Songs

The study of harmony and didacticism in indigenous songs of AmaXhosa is an area that has not been specifically dealt with, yet its importance in nation building cannot be overemphasized. It also attempt to respond to criticism advanced by the 19th century pioneers who arrived in Southern Africa. They condemned traditional music and all indigenous rites as heathen and therefore pagan. Yet they are very well positioned to develop both the young and the old, and also identity and consciousness through interaction with music and culture. The book illustrates that developing our own children with our own music can bring consequent change, for example, in terms of identity and self-reliance.

Vusi Gumede Political Economy of Post-apartheid South Africa

The book, made up of three parts, covers a wide spectrum of political economy issues on post-apartheid South Africa. Although the text is mainly descriptive, to explain various areas of the political economy of post-apartheid South Africa, the first and the last parts provide illuminating insights on the kind of society that is emerging during the twenty-one years of democracy in the country. The book discusses important aspects of the political history of apartheid South Africa and the evolution of post-apartheid society, including an important recap of the history of southern Africa before colonialism.

Displacement, Elimination and Replacement of Indigenous People. Putting into Perspective Land Ownership and Ancestry in Decolonising Contemporary Zimbabwe

Colonial scholars have taken immense pleasure in portraying Africans as possessed by spirits but as lacking possession and ownership of their resources, including land. Erroneously deemed to be thoroughly spiritually possessed but lacking senses of material possession and ownership of resources, Africans have been consistently dispossessed and displaced from the era of enslavement, through colonialism, to the neocolonial era. Delving into the historiography of dispossession and displacement on the continent of Africa, and in particular in Zimbabwe, this book also tackles contemporary forms of dispossession and displacement manifesting in the ongoing transnational corporations land grabs in Africa, wherein African peasants continue to be dispossessed and displaced.Focusing on the topical issues around dispossession and repossession of land, and the attendant displacements in contemporary Zimbabwe, the book theorises displacements from a decolonial Pan-Africanist perspective and it also unpacks various forms of displacements – corporeal, noncorporeal, cognitive, spiritual, genealogical and linguistic displacements, among others. The book is an excellent read for scholars from a variety of disciplines such as Geography, Sociology, Social Anthropology, History, Linguistics, Development Studies, Science and technology Studies, Jurisprudence and Social Theory, Law and Philosophy. The book also offers intellectual grit for policy makers and implementers, civil society organisations ...

John H. Glover How Things Fell Apart. A Short History of South Africa - 1488 to Present Day

In How Things Fell Apart - A Short History of South Africa - 1488 to Present Day, John H. Glover reveals the source of Apartheid and the racial struggles of the indigenous South Africans. Africans, their struggles with the European for political justice and freedom, and their denial of equality in the South Africa Parliamentary system and its society. John used letters written by European South African Politicians to show the fights of the indigenous South Africans and what they were up against, such as Percy A. Molteno, James Rose-Innes, J. X. Merriman, and Sir Alfred Milner, British Governor of Cape Colony, who wrote to Rev. James Green on December 12, 1901: ".As for the indigenous South Africans, one thing which appears to me quite evident is that a distinction must be drawn in the case of the natives between personal and political rights. A political equality of white and black is impossible.in any South African Parliament the interests of the blacks should be specially represented.this could be best done by white men, not elected but nominated for that particular purpose.As regards to personal rights, I hold that those of the natives should be just as clearly defined, and just as sacred as those of the white men. I do not, however, think that they need always be, or ought always to be the same.."

Daniel M. Cobb Say We Are Nations. Documents of Politics and Protest in Indigenous America since 1887

In this wide-ranging and carefully curated anthology, Daniel M. Cobb presents the words of Indigenous people who have shaped Native American rights movements from the late nineteenth century through the present day. Presenting essays, letters, interviews, speeches, government documents, and other testimony, Cobb shows how tribal leaders, intellectuals, and activists deployed a variety of protest methods over more than a century to demand Indigenous sovereignty. As these documents show, Native peoples have adopted a wide range of strategies in this struggle, invoking "American" and global democratic ideas about citizenship, freedom, justice, consent of the governed, representation, and personal and civil liberties while investing them with indigenized meanings.The more than fifty documents gathered here are organized chronologically and thematically for ease in classroom and research use. They address the aspirations of Indigenous nations and individuals within Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska as well as the continental United States, placing their activism in both national and international contexts. The collection's topical breadth, analytical framework, and emphasis on unpublished materials offer students and scholars new sources with which to engage and explore American Indian thought and political action.

Ashrafuzzaman Md., Johansson Dahre Ulf Tragedy of the Hills

The indigenous population of the CHT in Bangladesh holds a national identity since they have been living here for centuries. The ownership of land is confined here within a mechanism of dual principle which the state employs in the name of ensuring fairness. The British colonial rule, the Pakistani regime and the Bangladesh regime through military government the state have applied the most deadly means to displace the indigenous people from their land with a view to subjugate them. Manipulating the cultural identity and history of the indigenous people, making them victims of repressive laws, confiscating their land for military purposes and for migrant settlers, sending the military to control them and creating conflict among the communities through shameful mechanisms, are examples of some of the policies that the different states has used. So addressing the issue of land rights has become a matter of urgency within the field of development in the context of 21st century Bangladesh.

Linda Kiluma The Vegetation Structure of Kitulangalo Miombo Woodlands

The information on the dynamics of stand structure and composition of indigenous forests and woodlands needs to be explored more systematically, as it probably holds the key to the management of the indigenous forests. Unfortunately, vegetative information on the structure of the Miombo woodlands in Eastern Tanzania is scanty, as much of the literature on Miombo woodlands remains greatly deficient in precise data about its extent, composition, and rate of growth. This book, therefore, provides species composition, population characteristics and distribution of the ecosystem as well as species dominance using species IVI and percentage of canopy cover for the Miombo woodlands at Kitulangalo Forest Reserve. The analysis done in this book should shed some light on how to manage the overexploited indigenous trees of Kitulangalo Forest Reserve which consists of over 88% of small trees of ≤ 20 cm dbh indicating recovery from earlier intense utilization pressure. This book which targets researchers, academicians and conservationists should also spearhead more research on the Miombo woodlands found at Kitulangalo Forest Reserve which have a high presence of Combretum molle.

Also, agricultural development efforts of actors for instance World Band, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) both local and international has been tremendous. Despite these resources (abundant indigenous knowledge and efforts of actors), success has not been optimum. This book, which considered indigenous and modern agricultural practices, examined the knowledge basis of farmers in the Sissala districts of northern Ghana and modern agricultural technologies development and introduction to ascertain adoption mode. The book therefore makes available insights in this regard for instances the knowledge basis of farmers, the influences of this knowledge systems in relation to technologies development and introduction or delivery.

Russ Longhurst ROBOTIC LUNAR ROVER SIMULATION SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF TERRAIN SENSING, POSITION DETERMINATION AND NAVIGATION BY A ROBOTIC LUNAR ROVER

To aid in the development of a lunar rover, a series of robotic simulations was created using ROBOSIM and MATLAB Simulink. The first of these simulations utilized an invisible Cartesian robot along with collision detection heuristics within ROBOSIM to create an algorithm that emulated the surface mapping of the Moon by a lunar reconnaissance orbiter (LRO). The surface map produced by the LRO scan was used with a second simulation where the rover under supervised control, and with the use of a laser range finder, measured its distance to prior mapped terrain features. The measured distances, along with the position coordinates of the mapped terrain features were used to calculate the rover's position. The experimental results show that on average the rover's position was determined to within 3.31 meters of its true position. These results lead to the conclusion that this method of position determination can provide accuracy similar to the Earth-based global positioning system (GPS).

Mick Pope A Climate of Justice. Loving your neighbour in a warming world

What does it mean to love our neighbours in a world that is warming?That is just one of the questions dealt with in A Climate of Justice. Justice, we are reminded, is important to Christians because justice reflects God’s character. There are many issues of justice that currently concern Christians: the refugee crises and the treatment of asylum seekers; the ways in which indigenous people around the world are treated, including the way in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples lag behind non-indigenous Australians.Dr. Mick Pope examines these and other justice issues through the lens of the Parable of the Good Samaritan, as well as within the context of climate change. What will come as a surprise to many is the role climate change is found to play in addressing these key issues of justice.
