What occurs whilst ritual practitioners from a small Pacific kingdom make an highbrow estate declare to bungee leaping? while a German corporation effectively sues to shield its trademark of a Māori identify? Or while UNESCO deems ephemeral sand drawings to be "intangible cultural heritage"? In Treasured Possessions, Haidy Geismar examines how worldwide varieties of cultural and highbrow estate are being redefined through daily humans and policymakers in markedly diversified Pacific countries. the recent Hebrides, a small archipelago in Melanesia controlled together via Britain and France till 1980, is now the autonomous countryside of Vanuatu, with a inhabitants that's greater than ninety five percentage indigenous. New Zealand, against this, is a settler kingdom and previous British colony that engages with its entangled Polynesian and British history via an ethos of "biculturalism" that's intended to contain an indigenous inhabitants of simply 15 percentage. replacement notions of estate, assets, and heritage—informed by means of distinctive nationwide histories—are rising in either nations. those estate claims are complicated in nationwide and overseas settings, yet they emanate from particular groups and cultural landscapes, and they're grounded in an understanding of ancestral energy and inheritance. They exhibit highbrow and cultural estate to be not just criminal constructs but in addition robust methods of exclaiming indigenous identities and sovereignties.
