Abstract

While many digitization projects are currently underway, to help preserve Indigenous traditions, few explore the full potential of the development of digital media and networked technology through Indigenous cultures. This paper outlines the three phases necessary for a robust digital preservation, promotion and growth project: 1) Straightforward documentation of Indigenous traditions 2) Translation of Indigenous traditions into emerging technology and contemporary cultural modes of expression 3) Application of principles of Indigenous traditions to develop new technologies
