Igoe (anthropology, U. of Colorado at Denver) examines the impact of national park boundary enforcement in East Africa on Maasai herders displaced from their traditional lands. The case study is related to wider questions of how notions of conservation are conditioned by elite notions of nature and science. The role of African elites and international NGOs are explored. The East African case is then compared with examples from the Americas, Australia, and Asia, with a special emphasis on the experiences of the Oglala Sioux in South Dakota.
