Bio-Cultural Knowledge

You may have heard the term traditional knowledge, or Bama/Islander cultural knowledge. A more recent term recognising this knowledge is Indigenous Biocultural Knowledge (IBK), ‘knowledge that encompasses people, language and culture, and their relationship to the environment’.  Our services ultimately seek to put people and culture back into the environment.

Cultural Transmission of Knowledge

For thousands of years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have lived on and managed this country, shaping the landscapes and environments, and adapting to changing climates. The knowledge that has been accumulated through intimate and sustained connections to the land and waters has been passed down orally through generations, existing in stories, paintings, song and dance. 

Traditional science often ignores the wealth of knowledge that Indigenous people get from their land. Much can be gained by learning from Traditional Owners if done in a respectful and culturally appropriate way. Gerry Turpin is is an unique position having a foot in both worlds.
