Forum: Sacred Earth
3    Introduction
ALAN TIDWELL
For the indigenous peoples of the world, native lands are inextricably tied to ideas of heritage, cul-
ture, and livelihood. Their interests, however, must often compete with those of state governments
and private industry. In locations as diverse as Canada, Kenya, and the South Pacific, disagreements
are addressed through established institutions like local governments and national courts. Yet, in
Indonesia, Siberia, and the Arctic, political stalemates drive indigenous groups to agitate for change
through political mobilization. This Forum examines how the intimate links among indigenous peo-
ples, land, and resources are imperiled. Consolidation of state power, modernization of economic
and legal systems, and climate change all create challenges for indigenous peoples seeking to shape
their own destines and protect their sacred earth.

Despite recognition by military leaders of a required shift to population security in Afghanistan,
only the United Nations possesses the relevant expertise to lead the more crucial aspects of interna-

sector reform.
