Being and seeing Chakma: constructing self and other through images

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


The increased politicisation of the question of ?who is Indigenous? can be seen as a result of success in the attainment of legal recognition ? often through international laws ? of Indigenous peoples around the world. Consequently, international organisations, host states, non-governmental organisations and researchers have each attempted to develop their own definitional standards of native peoples over the last five decades, although, as Corntassel (2003) points out, this is best answered by Indigenous communities themselves.
