General discussion on indigenous category
I don't feel comfortable about categories that seem to be motivated by misconceptions (re: there has been a misconception that these peoples... ). I also think this category has POV problems (read Maasai and Mukogodo-Maasai to see one obvious problem). In North America and Australia, this seems to be a term that is commonly used. In Africa however it isn't. Let's stick to using it only where is is in common use — I don't see why we would need to add almost every single ethno-stub to this category. — mark 12:53, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC) edit
Validity, usefulness and what should be included?
I should like to further explore in some detail the notions on whether or not this Category is a valid, useful, or desirable one. In my view, I believe that it is (or can be made so- at present, it has only a few, almost random entries, and as such is deficient). In response to some likely questions:
  • Is there a valid and recognised sense in which the term or label indigenous peoples is applied to a variety of cultural groups in some "unifying" way - given their obviously great diversity of experience, culture and history? Yes. Apart from its "everyday" meaning, the term has a real and specific usage found in national and international law, political, historical and anthropological academia, and specialised organisational and representational literature. Contemporary usage or identification as indigenous is an often quite explicit, even political act, made by the communities themselves or other organisations. The current main

      US in Africa: Partnership or Pillage?
      By Yifat Susskind

      Trade Not Aid
      The US Commerce Department has labeled Africa "the last frontier for American business." But to most Africans, Clinton's trade policy is simply the latest maneuver in a long history of exploitation by the global North (rich, industrialized countries led by the US). This history encompasses the slave trade, colonialism, neo-colonialism (economic domination even after political independence), and now, a kind of re-colonization in the form of neo-liberal policies like SAPs and "free," or unregulated trade. In the 1950's, African independence movements won some control over national resources and basic rights like healthcare, housing and jobs. But African economies remained dominated by Northern governments and banks whose reckless lending policies generated a massive debt that has kept African countries vulnerable to Northern policy demands and dependent on even more loans to make payments. Some of us are familiar with the terrible burden that debt has placed on poor and working people in Latin America, where the debt is a full 38% of the region's Gross Domestic Product (the total value of goods and services produced within a year). In Africa that figure is 106%.

The largest lakes are Victoria (the world's second largest freshwater lake), Tanganyika, Albert, Turkana, and Nyasa (or Malawi), all in E Africa; shallow Lake Chad, the largest in W Africa, shrinks considerably during dry periods. The lakes and major rivers (most of which are navigable in stretches above the escarpment of the plateau) form an important inland transportation system.

I am in Somaliland, a country longing for an international recognition. I started blogging during the time when I was on the verge of becoming burnt out. Writing became my therapy, my outlet. When I was applying in becoming a development worker for a skills share program, I never heard of Somaliland, I searched and searched for information. Most of the articles I came across were negative information about Somalia and Somaliland. Information that seems alien to people without a good grasp of the African context I wanted to know more about the life and place called Somaliland, I found none.

    Education, indigenous knowledge and globalisation
    Gemma Burford, Lesikar Ole Ngila and Yunus Rafiki, Aang Serian Community College, Tanzania
    The interface between indigenous knowledge and globalisation: rewriting education for African realities - developing a model for the systematic integration of indigenous knowledge into formal and semi-formal education.
    As members of an organisation with the primary aim of promoting and preserving the traditional knowledge and cultures of Africa, we are concerned that the colonialist or early missionary mentality is still very much alive in societies that were once colonised. There is still a widely held view that anything associated with culture and hereditary values is pagan, and thus backward, as reflected by the vast number of urban Africans who feel embarrassed to associate themselves with their own cultural background. It is time for us to recognise this deeply rooted mentality as the product of a particular time and of specific policies in human history, and to acknowledge the limitations it imposes on our development, as well as its devastating effects on the natural environment. The majority of African youth still subscribe to the "American dream", and on a smaller scale, to the "urban dream". The growing trend towards urbanisation is encouraging thousands to abandon their indigenous knowledge, in the belief that new knowledge and new opportunities are to be found in town. Yet the realities of mass unemployment, the high costs of urban life and of further education, and the growing pandemic of AIDS testify that this is not the case. Many end up homeless, jobless and penniless, with neither the traditional skills that sustained their ancestors nor the specialised and expensive skills required for employment in a modern town. The inevitable result is poverty.

    "In the broadest sense, colonialism is the application of the international designs of imperialistic powers, whereby the peoples of weaker states or territories are subjected to the rule and control of the governments of these more powerful states, for the purposes of exploitation of resources, imposition of alien values, and the safeguarding of the colonizing power's national interest. Whether this national interest demands involvement in distant lands or adjacent ones in really immaterial; the objectives and the methods are much the same." De Blij, 1971. II.

    NSAs in Africa: The Call to Action by Christopher Hooper, MAIC Trauma counselor Florence Lakor, right, listens to 16-year-old Julius, as he tells of the two years he was forced by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) to live as a guerrilla fighter in Sudan and Uganda. c/o AP Introduction The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) cites Africa as the continent with the largest number of conflicts. In such countries as the Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Zimbabwe and Angola, the 2003 Landmine Monitor NSAs and Geneva Call The Landmine Monitor defines NSAs as “armed groups operating outside of government control.” Engaging NSAs in mine action is complex in that third-party recognition grants them validity in the international community even if their respective ends may be menacing and dubious. At the same time, treaties like the Ottawa Convention do not apply to NSAs, whatever their respective military power. Thus, the issue becomes establishing the understanding that if the insurgency group’s true aims are consistent with humanitarian ideals, it must recognize the untold harm that landmines inflict upon innocent civilians and thus take steps towards mine action. Landmines rank highly in many NSAs’ arsenals. As such, many NSAs claim that removing them from their munitions stores would hinder their political and military aims. As in the case of the SPLM/A in the Sudan, various factions of the disparate group continue to use landmines. Despite having signed a deed of commitment (DoC) with Geneva Call, the January 2004 issue of Geneva Call’s
