A Torres Strait Islander Perspective on the Concept of Indigenous Knowledge.
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v29 n2 p22-29 2001
Indigenous knowledge is a living, breathing concept and must be treated with care and respect. This living knowledge is transmitted orally. At the University of Queensland (Australia), the Torres Strait Islander Studies course was taught in the Indigenous way, and elders were involved throughout, from formatting the course outline to the running of cultural activities and being guest lecturers.
