Preserving indigenous knowledge

Indigenous peoples all over the world are today using technology to record and protect their traditional knowledge and culture. Communities are gathering details on their environments and the available food sources. They are documenting and preserving agricultural methods that have been passed down through centuries. Far from being primitive, these techniques have been tried, tested and developed to perfectly suit local conditions. It is vitally important then, that this indigenous knowledge is preserved and shared for many generations to come.

Indigenous knowledge preservation is a growing concern as modern culture homogenizes the planet. It is an amazingly simple process to overlook as the rush to move "forward" overshadows everything.
