Authored as a result of a remarkable collaboration between indigenous people's own leaders, other social activists and scholars from a wide range of disciplines, this volume explores what is happening today to indigenous peoples as they are enmeshed, almost inevitably, in the remorseless expansion of the modern economy and development, at the behest of the pressures of the market-place and government. It is particularly timely, given the rise in criticism of free market capitalism generally, as well as of development. The volume seeks to capture the complex, power-laden, often contradictory features of indigenous agency and relationships. It shows how peoples do not just resist or react to the pressures of market and state, but also initiate and sustain "life projects" of their own which embody local history and incorporate plans to improve their social and economic ways of living.

There is a tendency in northern Russiastudies to emphasize the material utility and worth of animals, includingreindeer. But the significance of reindeer stretches well beyond considerations of diet (intestines, meat and marrow) and utility (shelter

Kids wander around in the dark around here, drinking and getting into nogood. Sometimes their parents are drinking and their kids are hungry; they come Page 324 to the door for food. I don’t let mine out after dark. It’s hard, people changing,drinking and fighting. Sometimes the young people come here, a
