Abstract

Review of Working with the Ancestors: Mana and Place in the Marquesas Islands by Emily C. Donaldson.
This book presents original research on the values and meanings attributed to cultural landscapes in the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia. It addresses questions that are core to current sustainability debates: Is it possible to separate Indigenous cultural and environmental values? How has depopulation, colonialism and religion impacted island communities? Are capitalist approaches to cultural heritage management sustainable if they diminish the very values that give significance to heritage places?
