WAY OF COMMUNICATION IN INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGE RELATED STUDIES
The Global Knowledge can be broadly disassociated into two types: Indigenous and Modern. Indigenous or Traditional Knowledge traits are scattered worldwide among the folk people. These are oral and undocumented, subjected to loss and rediscovery, outcome of trial and error from informal experimentations during the course of folk life. These traits unite to form a knowledge system known as the Indigenous Knowledge System (IKS). IKS is very closer to the religious organization (basically non-adaptive) and hence gets stability in terms of myth and belief often looking extra- scientific, post-modern and superstitious. The necessity of collaborative modern knowledge system and indigenous knowledge system for sustainable development and communication has a major role to play in this whole issue. This paper tries to highlight on communication system during IKS related studies.
