Abstract

Previous studies of recreation conflicts in protected areas focus on conflicts between visitors and managers, between recreational users in the same activity or different activities, and with other non-recreation activities over use of natural resources. There has been little attention given to cultural conflicts between recreation activities and indigenous or ethnic groups. This paper addresses cultural conflicts between indigenous groups, recreational users and management agencies over the appropriate amenity use of natural areas. It assesses both social values conflicts and interpersonal conflict between groups with different worldviews about natural landscapes, resource use and recreation.
