"Increasingly today, intellectual rights over traditional knowledge are fiercely contested and have revived debates about culture in major ways. But how should we make sense of the politics and meaning of culture, knowledge and authorship? What are the unexamined assumptions over the regimes of knowledge that ground the increasingly pervasive legal constructs on intellectual property? What are we to make of inconsistencies that surface in cultural claims? As the Brazilian anthropologist Manuela Carneiro da Cunha highlights in this pamphlet, it is no easy task. By distinguishing "culture" from culture, the former being a reflexive notion that purportedly speaks about the latter, da Cunha shows how such inconsistencies are inherent to any reflexive system. She asks: What are the cognitive as well as pragmatic consequences of the coexistence of "culture" and culture? In answer, da Cunha explains how the loan word "culture," as imported from anthropological jargon, is mobilized by indigenous people to effectively separate interpretive regimes and avoid contradictions."--BOOK JACKET.

Finding Books About Indigenous Peoples and Intellectual Property at the Chickasaw Nation Law Library
Finding Articles and Journals
A number of practice oriented journals as well as academic law reviews offer coverage of empirical research topics. Some of these journals are available in print in the Chickasaw Nation Law Library, and some are also available in subscription databases, including HeinOnline, Westlaw, and LexisNexis.
All the journal articles searchable in HeinOnline are in full text. Westlaw and LexisNexis also have full text databases devoted to periodical legal literature.
However, many of the articles indexed or found in full text in the tools discussed above will be primarily from publishers in the United States, Canada, England and Australia. Because the topic you are researching involves additional foreign and international topics, use of the the subject index, the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, may be necessary to locate additional article citations. The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is on HeinOnline.
