Indigenous Affairs, n1-4 1998
This document contains the four 1998 English-language issues of Indigenous Affairs and the four corresponding issues in Spanish. These periodicals provide a resource on the history, current conditions, and struggles for self-determination and human rights of indigenous peoples around the world. The first issue is a theme issue on the indigenous peoples and nations of the Pacific and includes general articles on decolonization, self-determination, and the indigenous rights movement in the Pacific, as well as articles on specific Pacific Island nations. General articles in other issues discuss the research needed to promote effective activist strategies, the "second wave" of colonialism in a rapidly changing world, protection for indigenous cultural knowledge, and the principle and process of self-determination. Articles on the United States and Canada examine the history of colonialism, land issues, and indigenous rights in Hawaii, and the history of Innu resistance to natural resources exploitation on their land in Labrador. Articles on the circumpolar Arctic describe the development of transnational Inuit alliances addressing environmental, political, economic, and cultural issues, and the importance for cultural survival of assigning economic value to indigenous subsistence activities. An article on Australia discusses the national inquiry into the separation of generations of Aboriginal children from their families and the national convention on reconciliation between indigenous and nonindigenous Australians. Other articles cover politics, human rights, the impact of tourism, environmental issues, women's issues, and cultural and linguistic rights in India, Colombia, Namibia, Tanzania, Venezuela, Cambodia, Malaysia, Kenya, Mexico, Ecuador, Philippines, Thailand, and Nicaragua.
