Thesis


Thesis Title: Researching the knowledge journey practices of Indigenous Elders relevant to the younger generation: A  Community-Based Participatory Study

To study Indigenous cultures and tradition is to understand how life experiences, their stories, languages and traditional practices are significant markers of knowledge resilience, community’s health, and cultural well-being. This research is aim to record and understand the Indigenous Elders knowledge journey practices observed during the cyclical process of how knowledge is created, synthesised, and shared in their unique social and cultural contexts. However, the vulnerability of oral tradition and its richness persistently relies on Elders capability to pass on the knowledge to the future generation. Community concerns are the unexpected passing of many Elders, disconnection to cultural land and access to modern technologies. Challenges remain in maintaining the integrity of spoken knowledge translated into written form, and capturing Elders knowledge in its entirety. The significance of this research is threefold in its impact on the accuracy of recording Elders’ stories truthfully, ethically and interpreting the written culture reflected on the community’s needs. This research is qualitative grounded in visual ethnography using the principles of the community-based participatory research paradigm. Operational research methodology of researching Indigenous people in Australia. Secondly, framework and model of Elders knowledge journey will be developed, contributing to library and information sciences.
