Indigenous Knowledge Commons

Digital Publications

This page allows us to make available both articles and books for use in teaching and research projects. For articles, we are utilizing the Thought-mesh software.

The first three books below were originally published by Deakin University Press in Australia more than twenty five years ago. The series, edited by D. W. Chambers, instantiate the philosophical underpinnings that inform the Indigenous Knowledge Commons approach to the study of Indigenous Knowledge and Culture.

Singing the Land, Signing the Land,

Maps are Territories

Imagining Landscapes.
