Landscape Ethnography and the Politics of Nature

Landscape Ethnography and the Politics of Nature

(p.24) (p.25) 2. Landscape Ethnography and the Politics of Nature

Laura A. Ogden

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter discusses the ethnography and landscape of Bill Ashley Jungles by recounting the experiences of early glades hunters. The name Bill Ashley was derived after a band of outlaws who hid out in the Everglades during the 1920s. The chapter gives accounts of glades hunters and examines the tensions of their experience produced by the intertwining of local mythologies, economic struggles, and asymmetrical relations. It also discusses the notion of hunter’s landscape, which is a set of relations among humans and nonhumans that were shaped by the cultural practices and economic incentives of rural hunting in southern Florida. The concept of landscape ethnography is also defined as the ways in which our relations with nonhumans produce what it means to be human.
