Review of Biocultural diversity and indigenous ways of knowing: human ecology in the Arctic, by Karim-Aly S. Kassam
AbstractThe perspective put forth in Human ecology in the Arctic by K.-A. Kassam, although not one that is fundamentally foreign to Northern social scientists, is intended to challenge what I suspect the author considers more orthodox and less socially aware approaches to research. Focusing as it does on how Indigenous Northerners learn the environment (and how to learn what they learn), this book has its closest intellectual articulation in Ingold’s approach to human–environment relations.
