Johnson, Sarah, ed. Indigenous Knowledge. Cambridge: The White Horse Press, 2012.

Indigenous Knowledge investigates how indigenous peoples from various cultures interact with and conceptualize their environments, past and present. It offers accounts of indigenous conservation practices and traditional environmental knowledge, alongside challenging explorations of how “knowledge” is filtered through ideologies and subjectivities, from the Western scientific worldview to individual memory.

This is the third volume in the reader series, “Themes in Environmental History.” Each volume in the series comprises texts selected from the White Horse Press journals Environment and History, and Environmental Values, that address important aspects of environmental history by means of theoretical essays and case studies.
