Description: This collection explores the viewpoints of indigenous peoples--native pre-colonial inhabitants of an area--including eco-centric perspectives of the land and its resources meriting protection, rather than exploitation for economic gain. We will find indigenous worldviews regarding the environment and traditional knowledge related to biodiversity. This traditional knowledge may be passed on through generations, in a variety of forms, developed from understanding acquired over centuries. We also explore mobile indigenous people, those nomadic people and communities who practice sustainability in their use of natural resources. Also available for study are research materials from First Nations people of Canada, as well as those from the Amazon rain forest, and the aboriginal Polynesians of the Hawaiian Islands.
