Chapter 5 Conflict Management in a Modern Inuit Community. Hunter-gatherers have faced numerous challenges in the twentieth century. They have struggled for survival in the face of expansion of state systems, multinational corporations, and individuals who were anxious to exploit their lands, labor, and resources (Burch and Ellanna 1994; Burger 1987; Leacock and Lee 1982).

Hunter-gatherer societies were regarded as exhibiting female dispersal in the al band model in many former studies

Kalahari Peoples Fund. Michigan State University. It begins with a discussion of the debates over the concept of hunter-gatherers. Theoretical approaches to hunter-gather studies are examined briefly. Hunter-gatherer societies were regarded as exhibiting female dispersal in the al band model in many former studies. However, the model has been challenged by subsequent empirical studies, and the view that hunter-gatherer societies are typically bilocal has risen to prominence.

By Peter P. Hunters and Gatherers in the Modern World: Conflict, Resistance, and Self-Determination. By Peter P. The modern anthropological appreciation of hunting and gathering societies received significant impetus in April 1966, when seventy-five scholars from various parts of the world met at the University of Chicago at the "Man the Hunter" Conference (Lee and DeVore 1968). Twelve years later, the First Conference on Hunter-Gatherer Studies (CHAGS 1) was held in Paris, France (June 1978). This meeting included scholars.

Conflict, Resistance, and Self-Determination. Although quite a sizable body of literature exists on the living conditions of the hunters and gatherers, this volume is unique in that it represents the first extensive east-west scholarly exchange in anthropology since the demise of the USSR. Moreover, it also offers new perspectives from indigenous communities and scholars in an exchange that be termed "south-north" as opposed to " north-north," denoting the predominance of northern Europe and North America in scholarly debate.

In an age of heightened awareness of the threat that western industrialized societies pose to the environment, hunters and gatherers attract particularly strong interest because they occupy the ecological niches that are constantly eroded. Despite the denial of sovereignty, the world's more than 350 million indigenous peoples continue to assert aboriginal title to significant portions of the world's remaining bio-diversity. As a result, conflicts between tribal peoples and nation states are on the increase. Today, many of the societies that gave the field of anthropology its empirical foundations and unique global vision of a diverse and evolving humanity are being destroyed as a result of national economic, political, and military policies.

Although quite a sizable body of literature exists on the living conditions of the hunters and gatherers, this volume is unique in that it represents the first extensive east-west scholarly exchange in anthropology since the demise of the USSR. Moreover, it also offers new perspectives from indigenous communities and scholars in an exchange that be termed "south-north" as opposed to " north-north," denoting the predominance of northern Europe and North America in scholarly debate.

The main focus of this volume is on the internal dynamics and political strategies of hunting and gathering societies in areas of self-determination and self-representation. More specifically, it examines areas such as warfare and conflict resolution, resistance, identity and the state, demography and ecology, gender and representation, and world view and religion. It raises a large number of major issues of common concerns and therefore makes important reading for all those interested in human rights issues, ethnic conflict, grassroots development and community organization, and environmental topics.
