Two new journal Special Issues on Native peoples and the environment

The SpringerOpen journal Ecological Processes has just finished a Special Issue entitled “Complex interactions between biota, landscapes and Native peoples”. The Special Issue includes six original research articles, one review article and an introductory essay. Several of the papers in this series will be of interest to Turtle Talk readers, including a unique analysis of Lyng v. Northwest Indian Cemetery Protective Association (1988) by Cutcha Risling Baldy and a new take on the role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge as a collaborative concept by Professor Kyle P. Whyte.

Secondly, the Springer journal Climatic Change released a special issue entitled “Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples in the United States: Impacts, Experiences and Actions”, Volume 120, Issue 3, October 2013. There are several articles with federal Indian policy relevance in this Issue, including “Culture, law, risk and governance: contexts of traditional knowledge in climate change adaptation” by Terry Williams and Preston Hardison of the Tulalip Tribes Natural Resources Office of Treaty Rights.
