Do glaciers listen?: Local knowledge, colonial encounters and social imagination / Julie Cruikshank.

Title: Do glaciers listen?: Local knowledge, colonial encounters and social imagination / Julie Cruikshank.
Author(s): Cruikshank, Julie.
Date: 2005.
Publisher: Vancouver, BC: University of British Columbia Press
Abstract: Explores contrasting views of glaciers of Mount Saint Elias region during late stages of Little Ice Age (1550-1900). European visitors saw glaciers as inanimate, subject to investigation and measurement. Aboriginal histories (Athapaskan and Tlingit) describe glaciers as sentient, animate and responsive to human behaviour. Examines how local knowledge is produced through colonial encounters. Traces how divergent views influence contemporary debates about protected areas, parks and new World Heritage site. Final section covers "scientific research in sentient places", from early maps, glacier exploration and boundary making, to new stories from melting glaciers and the role of traditional ecological knowledge in partnerships between scientists and First Nations.
