about this item

The authors outline ways to link nature and society for more sustainable practices by drawing on the Native American model of sustainability. They describe how European colonialists impacted indigenous communities in the US and how colonialists targeted the elimination of Native American culture to control their resources and take ownership of their lands, then detail the cultures and traditions of indigenous peoples and local communities; a framework for blending Native American behavior with Western science that includes connecting society with nature, making practical and realistic decisions, following a Native American business model, and creative governance from consensual flexible partnership; and projects of Native American communities in sustainability.
