Webinar Series on the Future of Anthropology: Indigenous Peoples, Heritage and Landscape in the Asia Pacific: Knowledge Co-Production, Policy Change, and Empowerment
Traditional resource extraction has been employed by Indigenous and/or local communities for generations. However, political and economic pressures have forced communities to alter their practices to adapt to outside pressures. This shift resulted in gradual loss of Traditional Ecological Knowledge and expedited the assimilation of Indigenous and local communities to the larger state entities. In this panel, we provide examples from Taiwan and Bicol, Philippines where communities decided to maintain their traditional agricultural and fishing practices, but at the same time, met the demands of market and political pressures.
Panelists: Da-wei Kuan (National Cheng-chi University, Taiwan); Raul Bradecina (Partido State University), Yih-ren Lin (Taipei Medical University), Agung Wardana (Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia)
Moderator: Ching-ping Tang (NCCU)
