about this item

First Neale and Vincent backtrack to summarize the history of environmentalist-indigenous relations and recent legislative developments affecting them before highlighting three themes common to the contributions--proximity, governmentality, and indigeneity. They take the present, persistently unstable situation as a stimulant to further inquiry, first seeking to learn more about the current status of environmentalist-indigenous relations through specific, empirically grounded case studies. Second, they aim to shed light on the relationship the editors deemed a priority: to subject actual environmentalists to analytic scrutiny and rich description. Finally, all the scenarios the authors describe are not just understood as shared worlds, but structured by historic and ongoing inequities, and characterized by complex entanglements and the co-constitution of indigenous and non-indigenous identities. A major objective of the book is to begin to account, analytically, for indigenous ‘greenies’, be they protesters, rangers, residents or other. Finally, the book adds to case studies a series of interviews with indigenous and non-indigenous ‘practitioners’, whom were asked to reflect on their experience of working at the interface between environmentalists and indigenous groups.
