Abstract

This proposed workshop aims to explore and share viewpoints
on contentious matters concerning using ICT in the safeguarding
of Indigenous Knowledge (IK) and Intangible Cultural Heritage
(ICH). As organizers we have formed long lasting partnerships
with indigenous communities and are frequently situated in these
dialogical situations where topics such as ICT, cultural heritage
and indigenous knowledge are debated. With this workshop we
intend to give the opportunity to discuss contentious issues of research
impact among members of three groups: indigenous people
that are contributing to, and affected by, research on IK; invited
community–based co–designers and local researchers; and the organizers.
Participants will identify and discuss crucial topics around
impact and ethics of IK research.
We intend to collect viewpoints
and arguments on how sensitive research in indigenous communities
is to be carried out in order to meet the approval of actors
from all three groups. We conclude by drafting a plan to implement
suggested actions.
