Language revitalization in Native North America--issues of intellectual property rights and intellectual sovereignty



Language revitalization in Native North America--issues of intellectual property rights and intellectual sovereignty



Collegium Antropologicum 28(Suppl. 1): 257-262

As the people of California move towards language and cultural revitalization the question arises: What constitutes or constructs the definitions of intellectual property and how can appropriation of indigenous knowledge be protected? Looking at the issues faced by the California's indigenous populace and by implication, other indigenous peoples in the United States, this essay examines how protection may be afforded under the United Nations definition of 'heritage'.
