Abstract

Studies of attitudes to nature in Mongolia and Tuva show that concern for the environment is one of the most important issues for rural people. This paper describes preliminary findings from the MacArthur Project (University of Cambridge) using materials gathered in 1992-93. It discusses indigenous ideas of nature as an interactive system, hunting and killing, reproduction and artificial insemination, natural products as medicines, rituals to influence nature, attitudes to nomadism, and practical efforts of the concern for the environment.
