Increasingly, Indigenous people are being drawn into global networks. In the long term, cultural isolation is unlikely to be a viable—even if sometimes desired—option, so how can Indigenous people protect and advance their cultural values in the face of pressure from an interconnected world?

Indigenous Cultures in an Interconnected World is a comprehensive, thought-provoking discussion of the challenges that globalization presents for Indigenous peoples everywhere. It outlines successful strategies that have been used by Indigenous peoples to promote their identities and cultural values. It looks at their role as equal and active participants and, indeed, as innovators and leaders in an interconnected world. The authors present a truly global perspective on Indigenous issues. They feature a cross-disciplinary integration that takes a holistic approach and includes vignettes of Indigenous cultural practices.
