Charlotte View interviews Dr. Richard J. Chacon and Dr. Rubén Mendoza, who will discuss their research findings put forth in their recently published book titled:

 "The Ethics of Anthropology and Amerindian Research: Reporting on Environmental Degradation and Warfare."

The authors document the fact that, contrary to popularly held beliefs, the indigenous peoples of the Americas did (do) not always utilize natural resources with sustainability in mind nor did (do) they refrain from engaging in warfare.

During this interview, Dr. Chacon and Dr. Mendoza will be joined by various scholars to explore the many ethical ramifications of reporting and, specifically, of non-reporting instances of environmental degradation and warfare among pre- and post-contact Amerindians.
