Anyone here, who is doing political ecology in Amazonia??

It seems that there are quite of few cross-sections with the focus of research. I am seeing a relationship between tradition and conservation, tradition and the nation-state, and economic attachments and the transnational. I will start a forum for discussion with hopes that there is SOME discussion. The group has been quite stagnant, and I think it would be a good change of pace to have some Amazonian action afoot. Does anyone agree?

I'm working with the koripako/baniwa people in Brazilian Northwest Amazonia, exploring the relationship among the brazilian army's members and the young indigenous, mainly the indigenous who is in the army.

I'm working with the Ashaninka in the Peruvian Selva Central along the Rio Ene. I have been carrying out PhD fieldwork on indigenous-state relationships, concepts of citizenship and conflicts over territory (particularly with regard to the Ashaninka Communal Reserve, a "co-managed" protected area in Selva Central). I would be happy to share with everyone! I now live in Rome but travel frequently back to Peru.

I work in lowland South America, amongst the Wapishiana/Wapixana of Brasil and Guyana. However, my main focus is on those living within Guyana and how they "fit" within the state--i.e. looking at how indigeneity and nationalism meet. Initially, I considered a very Amazonian approach, but found that by solely classify these peoples as Amazonian, I was doing an injustice to their own perspectives of how they saw themselves existing. Hence, my anthropology is one that is transnational, and takes into consideration Amazonian and Creole perspectives.

I work in the Brazilian Amazon, on Marajo Island, studying women who work in direct sales (e.g. selling Avon) and how/if this contributes to the household economy and any degree of economic "independence"
