Biomapping or biocolonizing? Indigenous identities and scientific research in the 21st century

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2009 - 7:17am
Université de Savoie, Chambéry, France

Though, from a positivist point of view, scientific research represents the cornerstone of progress, it is undeniable that such research has often been used to support a particular policy or ideology. For example, during the colonization of the United States, Canada, Australia and New-Zealand, physical anthropology (and in particular craniometry) was used to show the inferiority of indigenous peoples and, thereby, justify their domination or annihilation. For this reason, and also for many others, indigenous peoples have looked on such research with suspicion, if not outright hostility.
