Abstract: Indigenous knowledge (IK) is defined as the unique, traditional and local knowledge of people within a particular area. Tpically, IK is stored in peoples' memories and passed down orally from generation to generation. However, with issues such as rapid urbanisation, commercialisation, marginalisation, westernisation and changes in technology, traditional IK systems are in decline. IK holds significant value, both in terms of cultural heritage and identity, and in terms of its potential economic and environmental benefits. As such, there is a strong drive to capture and preserve IK worldwide.
