Lecture 6- Reinventing the Primitive? Indigenous identity and politics
A.RECAP: 5 PROBLEMATIC ASSUMPTIONS WE MAKE ABOUT NATURE
The indigenous "can of worms": two Anthropology case studies
Class Activity: who are we?
Deconstructing identity
C. The indigenous slot
A. 5 problematic Assumptions we make About Nature
1. Nature has a single meaning best expressed trough "apolitical" science
- There are other alternative ways of understand nature and interacting with it
-nature has multiple meaning that is expressed in multiple ways and is often highly politicized
- manage nature in different way, prescribe to alternative theory, to come in and announce that you are
doing something wrong, leads to political conflicts for those pal
Struggles over nature are struggles over
2. Pristine nature exists or almost all nature is anthropogenic (symbolically and materially)
-whole globe bares an ecological foot print
Symbolic: meaning we ascribe to nature, meaning we give to wilderness and the forest
Materially:
3. Nature and culture are separate and distinct categories (controllable)
- We have seen symbolically, that there is some human nature
-saying culture and nature exists in 2 different things doesn’t make sense to kissidougou ppl
Nature and culture are inseparable but we create a symbolic separation which has material effects
(uncontrollable)
-wilderness created removed from us
-inseparability
4. THE natural rep. a realm separate from human intervention and activity

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
