Scarcity and Abundance. Contrasting conceptions of the forest in Northern Congo-Brazzaville, and issues for conservation
Paper prepared for the Ninth International Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies, Edinburgh Conference Centre, Heriot-Watt University, September 9 th th

There is little difference in outcome for local people between the activities of those Euro-Americans exploiting forest resources and those attempting to protect them. The paper will expand on this to show how it relates to certain fundamental conceptions of scarcity prevalent among people from industrialised nations. This is contrasted with local perceptions of the forest as abundant. The paper concludes by arguing that conceptions of abundance provide a more appropriate model for resource management in Central Africa than the continued imposition of models based on scarcity.
In this paper I shall focus broadly on some of the main characterisations of the forest and the relationships that compose and maintain it by certain key actors in Northern Congo-Brazzaville. Although briefly presenting an outline of the nuances within each group, I argue that broadly speaking there are two dominant views of the forest and its resources, one based on a perception of their abundance and the other based on a perception of their scarcity. In general, people coming from industrialised countries see the forest as a scarce resource and those people living in or near the forest see it as an abundant resource.

Major Research Interests
I am a general practitioner in cultural anthropology, with an ethnographic focus on Africa and with some past research in northern Asia. More specifically, my interests, research, and publications deal with social structure, political organization, and religion - and the process of transformation in them. I have also worked and published on slavery as a general cultural phenomenon, with a special interest in indigenous slavery in Africa as a culture-historical phenomenon. I have done fieldwork in the Congo, Cameroon, and the Ivory Coast.

Mr. Onsino Mato (Siocon Subanon Association) Mentions the case of Canadian mining company TVI trying to secure mining rights on his Ips legally recognised lands, despite the objection of the local Ips. Local mercenaries and police were used by the company to secure access to the land, violent arrests ensued. 45. Mr. Wang-Voyu Chih-Wei (Asian Indigenous Peoples Act) Tsou language: "yokeoasu na mansonsou mu acuhuu maitan'e, coveoza no hamo a'to" I bring greeting in my traditional Tsou language. My name is Voyu Yakumangana, and I represent the indigenous Tsou people of Dapangu community of Ali-Shan. Our people face the same difficulties as many indigenous communities around the world. As we are governed by a colonial state-government, the loss of land, language and culture have always been the most important issues. Our traditional territories, which encompass mountains, forest, minerals, water and natural resources are invaded and exploited by state-government in the name of the "Development". The state-government also denies indigenous peoples of our land title, and make illegitimate transfer of the land deeds to business groups and non-indigenous peoples.

at the Sackler Gallery looks at the spirits of China. In the Presence of Spirits This exhibition examines an impressive group of over 140 objects that reflect the influences of the supernatural world in both public and private life throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The exhibition is organized according to both geography and the numerous cultural groups represented in the National Museum of Ethnology's collection. In the Presence of Spirits features objects that derive mainly, although not exclusively, from those areas where the Portuguese were present, such as Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau. A group of important artworks from western, central and southern Africa complements this selection. These artifacts demonstrate the rich variety and sculptural inventiveness of the cultures indigenous to these regions and provide insight into many of their spiritual practices. Highlights of the exhibition include figures, decorated stools and chairs, pipes, masks, staffs and dolls used by kings, queens, chiefs, priests, priestesses and diviners to summon spiritual forces. Major themes include an examination of prestige objects and power figures, initiation and funerary rituals, and symbols of spiritual and secular authority.

    Peoples Between the Kwango and the Kasai
    Four clusters have been distinguished among the mixture of peoples in this area: the Yaka cluster includes, among others, the Suku. The Mbala cluster also includes several groups and is perhaps the most fragmented of the lot. The Pende cluster includes the Kwese; the Lunda cluster includes the Soonde and the Chokwe. The Lunda, closely related to the peoples of western Shaba, are included here by Vansina because they are separated from their core area and have had a longtime relationship with the other peoples in the area. Mixture and mutual influence have characterized these peoples, often in less than peaceful ways. In general, Lunda expansion led to the formation of Lunda-ruled states, a process that continued through the first half of the nineteenth century. The Chokwe, who became such a powerful presence in the core Lunda area in western Shaba in the second half of the nineteenth century, also drove north here in the same period, fragmenting local groups but also incorporating many of them. They were stopped only in 1885 by a coalition of Mbun, Njembe, and Pende, the first two being peoples of the lower Kasai. Except for the members of the Lunda cluster, most of the peoples in the area originally spoke a dialect of Kikongo or a language related to it. Over a period beginning in the seventeenth century, a good deal of movement was set in train by the expansion of the Lunda Empire. The result was the establishment of Lundainfluenced political patterns of Kongo peoples in the area.

    Sample Research Proposal You may also, depending on the nature of your research project/paper, append a brief bibliography of relevantsources that will inform your paper. Remember DEADLINES, as specified in IMPORTANT DATES section of the syllabus. State the topic in a clear, precise manner. Sometimes a subtitle is helpful in breaking down or clarifying down the subject further, for example: (a) PROTEST SONGS AS A MEDIUM FOR COMMUNICATING WORKERS' GRIEVANCES DURING THEDEPRESSION: A STUDY OF FIFTEEN LYRICS OR: (b) THE INFLUENCE OF CHURCH HYMNS ON PROTEST SONGS OF THE DEPRESSION: A STUDY OFFIFTEEN LYRICS The aim of this project is to investigate the verbal content of fifteen protest songs selected from the Depression (ca. 1927-1933) era, with focus on how the messages of the songs reflect workers’ experiences and expectations. In addition, the study will examine specific performance techniques employed in order to impress the messages on the audiences. A basic assumption of this project is that the situation of protest is a socially significant one and that the song texts and manner of performance will be influenced in many ways by the uniqueness of the situation. [Or: A basic hypothesis of this project is that there is a relationship between the situation of protest and the song texts, including the manner in which they are performed.]

    Brief History, Work, Objectives and Progress
    Brief History Of All For Christ Movement
    "All For Christ" as a mission movement in Congo started in 1978 when the first Protestant missionaries came to our jungles with the Good News of Christ. All missions societies that came to Congo since then have had one goal: to reach all Congo means all tribes, classes and persons for Christ. This first stage of Evangelism and mission work in Congo included a clear proclamation of the Gospel and church planting among hidden people groups. The "All For Christ" mission movement gave birth to a local church in which many Protestant denominations have been working together for one purpose: to win all Zaire with Christ. During the Jubilee Conference of 1928, Protestant denominations of Congo were given the name of "Eglise Indigene" (Indigenous Church). During the Conference of 1934, mission church leaders decided to change the name to "Church of Christ in Congo." All leaders were convinced that Christ has only one Church in the world with many diversities, so it was not necessary to build many denominations in Congo. The main objective of Christian mission in Congo was to build one Church in the heart of Africa: the "Church of Christ." Christ is not physically, psychologically, or spiritually divided. He is one Body. So is also His Church in the earth. From 1934 to 1960, the Church of Christ in Congo had two main institutions: The "Conseil Protestant du Congo" (CPC), and the Church of Christ, as a Body with many local churches or parishes. Each denomination was a section of the Unity. It was very easy to build and realize church growth programs for all the nation.
