Indigeneity and the Sacred
Indigenous Revival and the Conservation of Sacred Natural Sites in the Americas. Environmental Anthropology and Ethnobiology 22
This book presents current research in the political ecology of indigenous revival and its role in nature conservation in critical areas in the Americas. An important contribution to evolving studies on conservation of sacred natural sites (SNS), the book elucidates the complexity of development scenarios within cultural landscapes related to the appropriation of religion, environmental change in indigenous territories, and new conservation management approaches. Indigeneity and the Sacred explores how these struggles for land, rights, and political power are embedded within physical landscapes, and how indigenous identity is reconstituted as globalizing forces simultaneously threaten and promote the notion of indigeneity.

This book will be an excellent complement to other existing texts in the field of ecological anthropology." * William Balee, Tulane University
