Abstract

Book Reviews 233 legal questions related to the definition, dissemination, and protection of Indigenous peoples’ TEK. Melissa K. Nelson (Anishinaabe/Métis) concludes the collection with a keen summary of the major thematic emphases of the collection’s authors. Taken together, these chapters offer an illuminating survey of the field of sustainability studies as it relates to TEK, and inform and sharpen an appreciation for how such wisdom is being and could be applied. They provide, moreover, a useful anatomy of the self- constructions associated with Western and Indigenous traditions and their ecological implica- tions. The moral and practical urgency of cultivating an environmental ethic, and the various roles to be played by Indigenous wisdom in guid- ing not just sustainability studies as a discipline but all human relations with the nonhuman, are forcefully and persuasively explicated here. The importance of acting on such explications is eloquently summed up in Nelson’s conclusion: What many of us in this book say is, if sustainability is to mean anything relevant for us, our more- than- human relatives, and future generations, then we must put our environmental ethics into action and get back in our tracks by re- rooting to specific landscapes.
