Abstract

Indigenous Knowledge (IK) preservation and management has been taken up as a serious endeavor by
various governments who have realized the value of IK as well as the opportunities given by emerging
technologies. Considering the various phases and activities of indigenous knowledge management which
need to be supported through adequate designs and technologies, we propose an integrative framework: the
7C model. The aim is to guide design and implementation efforts as well as to identify and rectify any
possible gaps in current implementation plans. The model comprises seven major phases within the
indigenous knowledge digitization process, namely, codesign, conceptualization, collection, correction,
curation, circulation, and creation of knowledge. We exemplify the application of the model with
technologies currently developed under an indigenous knowledge holder’s toolkit promoting the agency of
digitalizing indigenous knowledge across the phases.
