Knowing differently : the challenge of the indigenous by G. N Devy( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a bold and illuminating account of the worldviews nurtured and sustained by indigenous communities from across continents, through their distinctive understanding of concepts such as space, time, joy, pain, life, and death. It demonstrates how this different mode of ‘knowing’ has brought the indigenous into a cultural conflict with communities that claim to be modern and scientific. Bringing together scholars, artists and activists engaged in understanding and conserving local knowledge that continues to be in the shadow of cultural extinction, the book attempts to interpret repercussions on identity and cultural transformation and points to the tragic fate of knowing the world differently. The volume inaugurates a new thematic area in post-colonial studies and cultural anthropology by highlighting the perspectives of marginalized indigenous communities, often burdened with being viewed as ‘primitive’. It will be useful to scholars and students of anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, history, linguistics, literature, and tribal studies."--Publisher description
The language loss of the indigenous by G. N Devy( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume traces the theme of the loss of language and culture in numerous post-colonial contexts. It establishes that the aphasia imposed on the indigenous is but a visible symptom of a deeper malaise - the mismatch between the symbiotic relation nurtured by the indigenous with their environment and the idea of development put before them as their future. The essays here show how the cultures and the imaginative expressions of indigenous communities all over the world are undergoing a phase of rapid depletion. They unravel the indifference of market forces to diversity and that of the states, unwilling to protect and safeguard these marginalized communities. This book will be useful to scholars and researchers of cultural and literary studies, linguistics, sociology and social anthropology, as well as tribal and indigenous studies
Performing identities : celebrating indigeneity in the arts by Geoffrey V Davis( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Performing Identities is a pioneering account of the performance practices among indigenous communities from across the world. It highlights how the worldviews nurtured and sustained by indigenous people are represented through their distinctive approaches and styles of 'doing art'; and how a divergent understanding of concepts such as space, time, joy, pain, life, and death calls for a different aesthetic response in perceiving creative expression." - back cover
