Abstract: Ethno-Environment management, consisting of disciplines such as ethno-botany, eth- zoology and ethno-forestry among others are here to revolutionize the years of policies and programmes geared at conservation forestry and natural resource management `Indigenous Knowledge Systems' are the buzzwords in the new discipline. At the centre of these indigenous institutions are the most commonly hailed concept of 'sacred groves' which are considered to be 'repositories of genepool and biodiversity', perfect examples of `conservation forestry', albeit under the `pressure of population' and the 'increased', `destructive dependence' on natural resources. The challenge therefore lies in conserving these `sacred groves' through building partnerships between the state, the market, and the community'. This analysis however fails to grapple with the deeper significance of the 'sacred' and indeed in relation to everything else that is 'sacred' but may not have the potential of economic exploitation.
