Aujourd’hui, on leur donne le nom de braconnier et on leur impose des amendes très sévères parmi les plus élevées du monde. Mais, il y a 150 ans, les exploits de ces chasseurs étaient célébrés et applaudis par la population.

Dismantling Stereotypes About Asian-American Identity Through Art | Huffington Post

Dismantling Stereotypes About Asian-American Identity Through Art | Huffington Post | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Last week, a New York Magazine piece by Andrew Sullivan received legitimate blowback for a final paragraph that described Asian Americans as “among the most prosperous, well-educated, and successful ethnic groups in America.”
As NPR’s Kat Chow pointed out in a response, Sullivan’s assertion lumps together a hugely diverse population, equating the experience of a Filipino-American with that of a Japanese-American when research refutes the assumption. Chow condemned Sullivan’s continuation of the “model minority” myth, which congratulates Asian Americans for overcoming discrimination and systemic oppression...

The politics and power of American archaeology | The Guardian

The politics and power of American archaeology | The Guardian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

The 82nd annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) just took place last week in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was well attended, and with the political climate being what it is in the United States right now, many of the conversations I had centred around advocacy. Most of the professional archaeologists I know (I dare say all the professional archaeologists I know) are committed to fighting efforts that weaken protections for cultural resources. It is not cynical to say that as a discipline we are...

L’Amazonie comme si vous y étiez | Le Devoir | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Dans l’imaginaire amazonien, les animaux pensent et parlent, et tentent de déjouer les stratégies des humains. Dans la culture jivaro, femmes et hommes chantent pour se témoigner leur amour. Chez les Taurepan, on chante même lorsqu’on va à la pêche, pour séduire les poissons.

Dans le cadre de l’exposition Amazonie. Le chamane et la pensée de la forêt, qui prend l’affiche ce jeudi au musée Pointe-à-Callière, des contes sonores, qui recréent les sons plutôt que le texte de l’histoire, ont été enregistrés pour ajouter à l’effet d’immersion du visiteur...

These Photos Offer a Glimpse Into the Racial Politics of the 1950s South | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

“Crisp! Cool! Colorful!” Anticipating what will likely be a long, hot summer in the small town of Yanceyville, North Carolina, a sign touts the merits of children’s cotton dresses.
But a chill evidently remains in the air. An African-American woman in this 1953 photograph is still in her wool coat. Her child, in his too-big suit, stares longingly at the department store’s mechanical horse, which is occupied by a little white girl in a smart pastel coat and matching bonnet. She returns the boy’s gaze, perhaps dimly aware of her part in this allegory of white privilege—a force with which the boy’s...

The Trial of the Century That Wasn't | Smithsonian

The Trial of the Century That Wasn't | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

There have been plenty of Trials of the Century in American history, but the prosecution of Jefferson Davis for treason would surely have taken the 19th-century title—if it had happened.The ex-Confederate president was released 150 years ago this month on $100,000 bail—well over $1 million today. More eye-popping than the amount was the list of 20 rich men who ponied up—which included three of the fiercest Unionists in the land. One of them was Gerrit Smith, a member of the “Secret Six,” who had helped finance John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry. Another was Cornelius Vanderbilt, who had donated his biggest steamship to the U.S. Navy. And then there was Horace Greeley, the excitable publisher whose New York Tribune had urged readers “Forward to Richmond!” when the Civil War broke out...

As President Donald Trump expands the role that his daughter and son-in-law play in his administration, many have eyed their expanding policy portfolio with concern.
Worries about separating family ties from political power are nothing new; they go back to the nation’s very founding. As the fledgling Americans knew, nepotism hits at the heart of a democratic republic. The nation’s first president George Washington saw it as a serious matter, particularly since a president who brings his children into power...

RARELY has a documentary arrived in British cinemas having made the sort of impact in America that I Am Not Your Negro has created since it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.

Raoul Peck’s documentary, which is based on the writings of the novelist and essayist James Baldwin, was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature and has a clutch of awards, starting with the People’s Choice Award at Toronto. It has pulled in more than $6.6 million at the US box office. Critics have described it as a “mesmerising cinematic experience” and a “cinematic séance”. And Madonna has described it as a “masterpiece. Poetic. Brutal. Inspiring.”

But it is at a more personal, individual level that the extraordinary power of the documentary lies...

James Forman Jr. divides his superb and shattering first book, “Locking Up Our Own: Crime and Punishment in Black America,” into two parts: “Origins” and “Consequences.” But the temptation is to scribble in, before “Consequences,” a modifier: “Unforeseen.” That is truly what this book is about, and what makes it tragic to the bone: How people, acting with the finest of intentions and the largest of hearts, could create a problem even more grievous than the one they were trying to solve...

The extravaganzas staged by Bertram Mills at London's Olympia every Christmas were events to see - and be seen at. George V and Winston Churchill were among a legion of VIP fans.
No wonder the celebrated showman was under pressure to find ever more unusual circus acts with which to titillate the crowds each year.

Since he disappeared in the Brazilian jungle in 1925, the British explorer Percy Fawcett has inspired plays, comic books, Hollywood movies and even an Indiana Jones novel. Eighty years later, Fawcett’s search for a lost ancient city which he dubbed “Z” inspired the journalist David Grann to follow in his footsteps. Grann recounted the story of Fawcett's life, in parallel with his own journey to learn about it, first in the New Yorker and then in a book, The Lost City of Z, which is now...

L’Amérique latine occupe une place particulière dans l’imaginaire français et, en particulier, dans l’imaginaire de gauche. Ce n’est pas un hasard si c’est aussi une destination privilégiée de voyage, notamment chez les jeunes adultes dont les périples latino-américains ont souvent une dimension initiatique. Si l’on demandait aux gens d’énumérer les images qu’ils associent à la région, on retrouverait sans doute en bonne place des pratiques culturelles, comme la salsa, des destinations vantées par l’industrie du tourisme – les plages du Brésil… –, ainsi qu’une série de lieux et de figures...
