Between "traditional" and "moderns": negotiations of rights in two protected areas of the Brazilian Amazon.Translated byElizabeth Abdanur, Leonardo Brito. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1809-4422.
In this paper we analyze the Jaú National Park and the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve, in which groups have claimed specific ethnic rights. We analyze how the category of traditional peoples has been used to classify residents inside and around these natural protected areas, and whether this taxonomy has converged with or distanced itself from the conservationists' proposals.
