Abstract:

"Based on detailed ethnographic and experimental research. Culture and Resource Conflict finds that Native American and European American hunters and fisherman have differing approaches - or mental models - with respect to fish and game, and that these differences lead to misunderstanding, stereotyping, and conflict. Menominees view the practice of hunting and fishing for sport as a sign of a lack of respect for nature. Whites, on the other hand define respect for nature more in terms of resource management and conservation." "Combining the strengths of psychology and anthropology, Culture and Resource Conflict shows how misunderstanding the motives of others can lead to hostility and conflict. As debates over natural resources range worldwide, this unique book demonstrates the obstacles that must be overcome for different groups to reach consensus over environmental policy."--BOOK JACKET.
