Key Concepts in Indigenous Studies


About the Series

This series of volumes offers the most systematic and foundational literature available to date for use by undergraduate and postgraduate students of indigenous studies. It brings together essays by experts from across the globe on concepts forming the bedrock of this rapidly growing field in five focused volumes: Environment and Belief Systems (Vol. 1); Gender and Rights (Vol. 2); Indigeneity and Nation (Vol. 3); Orality and Language (Vol. 4); and Performance and Knowledge (Vol. 5). These contain short, informative and easily accessible essays on the perspectives of indigenous communities from all continents of the world. The essays are written specifically for an international audience. They thus allow drawing of transnational and cross-cultural parallels, and form useful material as textbooks as well as texts for general readership. Introducing a new orientation to traditional anthropology with comprehensive and in-depth studies, the volumes foreground knowledge traditions and praxis of indigenous communities.
