This session invites hunter-gatherer representatives and researchers to present ethnography of the current situation facing hunter-gatherers and/or former hunter-gatherers as they are impacted by the forces of the state and modernity—from conservation initiatives that exclude them from their land, to governmental industrial or commercial developments that impact on their lives and livelihoods. Both positive and negative stories are welcome.

Direct testimonies or accounts by hunter-gatherers and former hunter-gatherers unable to attend are encouraged as short video blogs (preferably shorter than 5 minutes, but no longer than 10 minutes). Written papers will be considered for publication in the journal Hunter Gatherer Research.
