Dr Colson addresses the problems facing the Akawaio (Kapong) and Arekuna (Pemong) people of the upper Mazaruni basin, relating to their claims to ancestral land occupation and rights. In addition to the detailed literary and field material, there is a summary of the salient features of Akawaio and Arekuna land occupation, management, use and its sacred nature, all of which are supporting an urgent request for legal entitlement to their ancestral lands currently being put to the High Court in Georgetown.
