Living waters: Linking cultural knowledge, ecosystem services, and wilderness


Stumpff, Linda Moon. 2013. Living waters: Linking cultural knowledge, ecosystem services, and wilderness. International Journal of Wilderness. 19(1): 20-25.

American Indian tribes value pristine water sources that often originate in wilderness areas to support provisioning and cultural benefits. Based on interviews with four traditional leaders, this article focuses on the concept of living waters in ways that connect ecosystem service benefits to wilderness. Cultural knowledge connects indigenous water stewardship and protection of living waters throughout watersheds as threats increase due to climate change and development.
