A new paradigm for ethical and sustainable indigenous knowledge policy
Pillay, Hitendra K. (2008) A new paradigm for ethical and sustainable indigenous knowledge policy. In Hearn, Gregory N. & Rooney, David J. (Eds.) Knowledge policy: challenges for the 21st century. Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, UK, pp. 216-225.
Anthropological scholars, scientists and knowledge policy makers are witnessing a growing interest in indigenous knowledge in recent times. Increasingly, almost all faculties and schools of thought recognize the importance of traditional knowledge bases for the wellbeing of indigenous communities (and other communities who share the global space) across the world. The perspective is aimed at synthesizing global indigenous knowledge collected from local communities in a manner that addresses more effectively not only the respective communities' development problems but also provides intellectual insight for other similar communities around the world. Such transference and an interactive flow of indigenous knowledge with a view to solving local problems reiterate the importance of such knowledge policy for sustainable development. This view finds strong support in Australian indigenous professor Martin Nakata's (1998) discussion of anthropological texts and indigenous viewpoints.
