Author(s):Gosart, Ulia
Subject(s):traditional indigenous knowledge

indigenous peoples
intellectual property
indigenous e-inclusion
Abstract:This poster presentation envisions the initial steps in fostering indigenous e-inclusion by proposing the creation of an intercultural, multi-disciplinary dialog between representatives of academia, indigenous communities, and policy makers. This dialog would take the form of a Traditional Knowledge Forum and would be based upon and promote the standards for the fair treatment of indigenous peoples as outlined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The issues that will be addressed in the Forum include the protection and development of indigenous knowledge sources, the creation of a venue for meaningful cooperation and sharing of indigenous knowledge, and the establishment of an ethic for indigenous knowledge management.
