Abstract:This paper is part of an ongoing South Australian research project examining the knowledge creation and sharing practices of Indigenous people. This paper details the theoretical aspects underpinning a pilot study conducted with four senior Indigenous Elders and one young participant between the months of January and June 2016. A visual ethnographic approach following community-based participatory research principles was used to record the collaborative sharing of their knowledge ethically. Data collection consisted of video and audio dialogue interviews. There is little known about Indigenous knowledge creation and sharing practices in a traditional context and retrieving this knowledge is under-researched. The results show the effects, and the issues faced when knowledge is lost when Elders passes. Findings will contribute to greater understanding of Elders' knowledge creation develops and offer a new lens for understanding the importance of their stories and experiences in a way that is relevant to the information community.
