Abstract
"In the past few years indigenous knowledge has emerged as a significant resource in development discussions. This paper interrogates the concept of indigenous knowledge and the strategies its advocates advance to promote development. The paper suggests that the concept of indigenous knowledge,and its role in development, both are problematic issues as currently conceptualized. To productively engage indigenous knowledge in development, we must go beyond the dichotomy of indigenous vs. scientific and work towards greater autonomy for indigenous peoples."
