Trees, Knots, and Outriggers : Environmental Knowledge in the Northeast Kula Ring, Hardback Book

Trees, Knots, and Outriggers : Environmental Knowledge in the Northeast Kula Ring Hardback

Part of the Environmental Anthropology and Ethnobiology series

Hardback

Description

Trees, Knots and Outriggers (Kaynen Muyuw) is the culmination of twenty-five years of work by Frederick H.

Damon and his attention to cultural adaptations to the environment in Melanesia.

Damon details the intricacies of indigenous knowledge and practice in his sweeping synthesis of symbolic and structuralist anthropology with recent developments in historical ecology.

This book is a long conversation between the author's many Papua New Guinea informants, teachers and friends, and scientists in Australia, Europe and the United States, in which a spirit of adventure and discovery is palpable.
