Now I understand that you are referring to the lack of representation of a certain cultural tribe, for instance in the government. Hence, their interest only comes next to that of the majority's. However, do you think this has nothing to do with the beliefs and values that a collective (where that representative come from) has, which consequently influence decisions concerning economic development and environmental management?
Having that mentioned, I would also like to apologize for not being clear about my denition of culture. In this question, I would like to specifically define it as the beliefs and values that ethnic, religious or social groups have that remains fairly unchanged from generation to generation.
