Abstract

The maps produced by Indigenous peoples refer either to the appropriation by Indigenous peoples of the language and cartographic techniques of the modern State for the purposes of political self-determination, or to geographical knowledge and territorial ontologies which are specific to Indigenous societies. This chapter examines the political, social and epistemological issues involved in this twofold use of maps and mapping by Indigenous peoples.
