A GUIDE TO TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE RESOURCES
Includes Best Practices, Traditional Knowledge Centres, Traditional Knowledge Newsletters, Traditional Knowledge Websites, and Traditional Knowledge Literature. This material is excerpted from the Partnership Guidelines for ease of reading here.
The following are a few of the most important traditional knowledge web sites to be found on the Internet. When searching for information the term “Aboriginal” tends to be used by Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, “Native American” or “Indian” by the United States of America, and “Indigenous” by the rest of the world. This can be helpful in specifying your search.
BEST PRACTICES FOR PROJECT PLANNING
WITH INDIGENOUS TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE
Best practices for project planning to include indigenous traditional knowledge have not been well established. By adhering to the practices suggested here, planners and managers can minimize the risk to both project and people. This list, however, is not a step-by-step outline for project planning or implementation. Regional and local variations are extremely important. Being open-minded, sensitive to other cultures, and able to accept another person’s completely different way of solving problems is essential. Remember, most project planners have already decided the project should move ahead, and are concerned with how that should be done. Whereas, most indigenous communities who are being asked to participate, will be assessing why the project should go ahead, not how.
- Use the simple definition: indigenous peoples are self-identifiable as a people, wholly or partially self-governed, and live within a larger nation.
- Recognize that indigenous knowledge is a way of life, an experience-based relationship with family, spirits, animals, plants, and the land, an understanding and wisdom gained through generations of observation and teaching that uses indirect signals from nature or culture to predict future events or impacts.
- Weave indigenous peoples and their traditional knowledge systems as full partners in the design of a project when indigenous people are directly or indirectly affected by the project.
- In acquiring indigenous traditional knowledge:
- Cause no harm.
- Define the roles and responsibilities of participants carefully and in line with culture and knowledge systems.
- Define the information to be collected; specify taboo information as outside the project limits. Establish the use, ownership, and the means to interpret or communicate information at the outset.

TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE LITERATURE
The selections included in this list are intended to assist the reader in broadening information on topics in the handbook and also to suggest where case studies can be found. There are very few titles that directly describe how to include traditional knowledge in development projects, but this list includes most that are available. Finally, because indigenous resource rights, indigenous intellectual property rights and land ownership are complicated topics, some of the references refer to these issues.

Thanks. I find this site very useful.
Thanks. All in one site and useful for all.
Very interesting and useful site.Traditional Knowledge has got different meaning for different people.But one thing is sure that it is a complete knowledge.
I WISH TO STUDY MY PHD ON INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS AND THE ROLE THE UNIVERSITIES THEY CAN PLAY IN PROMOTING IKS.
The below free download may be relevant.
The below website carries my book entitled: “ Venus Rising: South African Astronomical Beliefs, Customs and Observations”. Please note that you will be able to read and print the book out. You can also search the file using key words of your choosing.
I trust that you will find the information useful.

Very useful sight. I am a graduate student of Indigenous Knowledge
Good luck with your studies. This is an important subject and one that needs to be understood outside of the indigenous community far better than it now is. There is much to learn about decision-making in the modern world using non-adversarial techniques derived at least in part from indigenous knowledge systems.
I am pursuing PhD in IKS and this site has provided an ample information required for my research work. Thank you.
necesito saber si ustedes tienen trabajo para mis he sido promotora de ausretovicio y tengo experiencia aparte tengo 4 hijos que quieren seguir estudiando les encargo mucho gracias
