Foundations of Environmental Sustainability

This chapter discusses how indigenous nations have affected conservation efforts, and how conservation efforts have affected indigenous nations. Nations are distinct from states; they are composed of culturally distinct groups, usually different from the majority culture in the country where they reside. States tend to be recent creations, while nations have existed for hundreds or thousands of years. Unfortunately, the world's states by and large have not supported the nations that reside within their boundaries. This is a loss to the entire world, as by refusing to acknowledge and empower their nations, states have eliminated vast stores of knowledge about the sustainable use of the earth's resources.
