Designers face a number of challenges in terms of when and
how to design interactive systems with indigenous groups. Every layer of
development faces obstacles from designing localized interfaces to facilitating prototype evaluations in the wild. This article argues for the importance of continuous user involvement and participatory design. This
is highlighted through explaining ongoing research in the creation of a
3D visualization knowledge management system to support preservation
of indigenous knowledge (IK) in Africa. Through the sharing of experiences from the field I underpin the importance of acknowledging users'
expertise and knowledge about the design context. Through presentation
of a selection of these challenges in localizing systems development I wish
to raise awareness of an required sensitivity to cultural differences in IT.
