Whether in Canada, the United States, Australia, India, Peru, or Russia, the approximately 500 million Indigenous Peoples in the world have faced a similar fate at the hands of colonizing powers. Assaults on language and culture, commercialization of art, and use of plant knowledge in the development of medicine have taken place all without consent, acknowledgement, or benefit to these Indigenous groups worldwide. Battiste and Henderson passionately detail the devastation these assaults have wrought on Indigenous peoples, why current legal regimes are inadequate to protect Indigenous knowledge, and put forward ideas for reform. Looking at the issues from an international perspective, this book explores developments in various countries including Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and also the work of the United Nations and relevant international agreements.

Conservationist has been contemptuous of Indigenous peoples and their knowledge. As such, all the modern polices, acts and laws in biodiversity conservation intends to follow a “top down” approach, where decisions to be enacted upon the local people, their land, biodiversity, forest etc are done at the top level without the local peoples consent, which ultimately leads to conflict. As such, the author through this book advocates for the implementation of two pronged policy i.e., “bottom up and top down” approach for a practical and effective biodiversity conservation. While the conservationist, environmentalist and policy makers view the forested lands as the last resort for biodiversity conservation, to the local people it is their only source of livelihood. The author draws attention on the Naga indigenous knowledge system in the light of United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (UNCBD), through which they were able to sustainable manage and conserve their biodiversity while obtaining their livelihood from the same. This book will help discover a deeper measure and value of the Naga indigenous knowledge system and will act as a resourceful material to students, researchers, activist and local people in their quest to comprehend the important dynamics of biodiversity conservation and indigenous knowledge. It will also serve as a valuable reference for indigenous peoples and policy makers all around the world who seeks to understand and implement indigenous knowledge systems in broader emerging biodiversity conservation policies and strategies.

This book is an intellectual journey into epistemology, pedagogy, physics, architecture, medicine and metallurgy. The focus is on various dimensions of African Indigenous Knowledge (AIK) with an emphasis on the sciences, an area that has been neglected in AIK discourse. The authors provide diverse views and perspectives on African indigenous scientific and technological knowledge that can benefit a wide spectrum of academics, scholars, students, development agents, and policy makers, in both governmental and non-governmental organizations, and enable critical and alternative analyses and possibilities for understanding science and technology in an African historical and contemporary context.

Combining unique practical experience with a sophisticated historical and theoretical framework, this impressive work offers a new basis to explore indigenous intellectual property. In this wide-ranging and imaginative study, Anderson has laid the groundwork for future scholarship in the field. Hopefully this work will set a new trajectory for how this important topic is approached and advanced with indigenous people. Brad Sherman, University of Queensland, Australia This informative book investigates how indigenous and traditional knowledge has been produced and positioned within intellectual property law and the effects of this position in both national and international jurisdictions. Drawing upon critical cultural and legal theory, Jane Anderson illustrates how the problems facing the inclusion of indigenous knowledge resonate with tensions that characterise intellectual property as a whole. She explores the extent that the emergence of indigenous interests in intellectual property law is a product of shifting politics within law, changing political environments, governmental intervention through strategic reports and innovative instances of individual agency. The author draws on long-term practical experience of working with indigenous people and communities whilst engaging with ongoing debates in the realm of legal theory. Detailing a comprehensive view on how indigenous knowledge has emerged as a discrete category within intellectual property law, this book will benefit researchers, academics and students dealing with law in the fields of IP, human rights, property and environmental law. It will also appeal to anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers and cultural theorists.
