Overview

Documents and describes the Menominee Indians' tribal practice of sustainable environmental development.

Sustaining the Forest, the People, and the Spirit tells the story of the Menominee Indian Tribe and how they have sustained their 230,000 acre forest in ways that have enhanced, rather than degraded, the environment in the face of development pressures. Through a careful look at Menominee history, politics, institutions, economy, culture, spirituality, science, and technology, Thomas Davis provides insight into how this case study of sustainable environmental development can offer a rough road map for other communities to follow.
