Hunters and Bureaucrats
Power, Knowledge, and Aboriginal-state Relations in the Southwest YukonBook - 2003
"Hunters and Bureaucrats is based on the author's ethnographic fieldwork in the Southwest Yukon. Nadasdy spent almost three years in Burwash Landing, a village of seventy people, most of whom are status Indians and members of the Kluane First Nation. The result is a revealing exploration of how land claims and co-management, as aspects of a new and evolving relationship between the Kluane First Nation and the state, are affecting Kluane people and their way of life." "Anthropologists, policy makers, scholars of Native Studies, and those concerned with the evolving relationship between Aboriginal peoples and the state will find this study a welcome addition to their fields."--Jacket.
