  • What is Traditional Knowledge?
    of ecological health in those spheres Perhaps even more central in importance is the fact that women share with men the responsibility for stewardship of values in their societies They feel a keen responsibility to future generations for action undertaken today that affect the world in which we all live and for their descendants It is women for the most part who transmit to the next generation these values as part of their stewardship role Their multi generational perspective must be taken into account Back to Top The Structure of Local Systems of Native Knowledge Traditional and nontraditional knowledge Many Natives hold traditional knowledge handed down to them from previous generations through oral tradition This ìtraditionalî knowledge is the cornerstone of Native cultural identity and survival as a people Some aspects of traditional knowledge are common and shared throughout the Arctic Other aspects are more localized and specific to certain communities families and even individuals However Native knowledge is not just traditional Natives also possess knowledge that does not have its origin in traditional lifestyles spirituality philosophy social relations customs cultural values etc In other words Natives have obtained an extensive body of nontraditional knowledge through direct exposure e g cultural interaction and formal schooling and indirect exposure e g television and other media to non Native values attitudes ways of thinking philosophies institutions etc Together these two sources of knowledge traditional and nontraditional articulate to produce a frame of understanding and validation that give meaning to the world around them In fact it can be argued that all Native knowledge traditional and otherwise is contemporary It has given meaning from a frame of reference that is continually being updated and revised Viewing native knowledge as ìtraditionalî and static invites denial of the relevance and efficacy of the application of Native knowledge to contemporary issues and problems In other words Native sometimes feel that the use of traditional knowledge to denote all that they know imposes a way of life on them that is shackled to the past and does not allow them to change Ecological and non ecological knowledge Many Natives possess ecological knowledge that is traditional in nature They depend extensively on this knowledge for maintaining their relationship with animals and providing food for their families But they have also gained extensive ecological knowledge from their own experiences with the land and other sources e g formal schooling and contact with biologists In fact their experiences often validate inform and give new meaning and value to traditional knowledge Thus Native ecological knowledge is composed of both traditional knowledge and experiential knowledge i e knowledge gained through personal experience Native systems of local knowledge Local knowledge systems are based on the shared experiences customs values traditions lifestyles social interactions ideological orientations and spiritual beliefs specific to Native communities These are forever evolving as new knowledge is obtained or generated But Native knowledge is more than the sum of its parts These parts articulate or merge to form unique dynamic
