Overview

This book is a collection of essays by Indigenous scholars and leaders which has been organized to share theories, research, experiences, as well as their methods in the application of Indigenous Knowledge. The idea to publish a collection of essays which would focus on framing the concept of Traditional Ecological Knowledge theories and practice, within current environmental, economic and social challenges and its realities, arose out of the shared and recognized need by Indigenous scholars to advocate an imperative for the inclusion of Indigenous Knowledge in addressing new approaches to global sustainability.
