Abstract: In partnership with Indigenous communities working on country, the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA – www.ala.org.au) is exploring the role of information management platforms in bridging the boundaries between traditional and contemporary Indigenous knowledge and western science. This presentation will provide an overview of the ALA’s Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK) program of work which aims to recognise the essential nature of a collaborative approach, and to provide tools to enable and empower greater Indigenous participation in biodiversity information management and assessment, and to support other aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people related to ecological or biodiversity knowledge. The presentation will also pose some questions around the role of digital infrastructures or platforms in how Indigenous knowledge is digitally captured, managed, and shared in the “information supply chain”.
