Acknowledging Indigenous Knowledge: Voices of Tropical Forest People

Acknowledging Indigenous Knowledge; Voices of Tropical Forest People
by Purabi Bose

English | 2024 | ISBN: 0367710250 | 129 pages | True PDF | 14.36 MB

This book explores how the landscapes in indigenous territories are rapidly changing due to increased global industrial demand. This deforestation and urbanization has isolated the Indigenous People from practising 'traditional ways of life.' Portrayed in the book are the Indigenous People's perspective of their Indigenous Knowledge about the enviornment, and why losing IK is a threat to humans, wildlife and nature. Insight is shared into why acknowledging IK as a science can help solve climate change, food and nutrition insecurity and increasing new types of pandemic, through evidence-based stories from Indigenous people. Features:
  • Bridges the fractured space between science and nature.
  • Documents the perspectives of Indigenous Peoples about their ancestral knowledge.
  • Provides ethnographic qualitative case studies of forest-dwelling Indigenous Peoples over a 19 year period.
  • Covers largely remote indigenous territories of ten tropical countries in the global south.
  • Provides evidence-based stories examining Indigenous Knowledge's role in the tropics in preserving diverse landscapes, and providing nature-based solutions.
