This document contains the four English-language issues of Indigenous Affairs published in 2000 and four corresponding issues in Spanish. The Spanish issues contain all or some of the articles contained in the English issues plus additional articles on Latin America. 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 four theme issues are concerned with the Pacific (Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Venezuela, and the Pacific in the Spanish edition); hunters and gatherers; indigenous women; and Indochina. Articles specifically concerned with American Indians in Latin America discuss indigenous land rights in Bolivia; indigenous political activism in Ecuador; community-based Mayan culture and identity, nonformal education and intergenerational transmission of culture, and indigenous rights in Guatemala; indigenous rights in the new Venezuelan constitution; indigenous peoples of the Chaco region, Argentina; and demography and educational needs of indigenous Peruvian women. Other articles examine relationships between indigenous peoples and their respective States; environmental degradation and protection on indigenous lands; the loss of indigenous languages in Africa; efforts to preserve indigenous languages and cultures; Inuit and American Indian whalers and their traditional resource management knowledge; the role of indigenous knowledge in subsistence activities; violence against indigenous women and the struggle for women's rights; and the impact of drought on Masai women and children in Kenya.
