AbstractThis presentation will examine the question of how Indigenous Traditional Knowledges could be included ethically, respectfully and legally into OERs. My idea is that, to address Intellectual Property concerns, it should be possible for faculty members and librarians to form relationships with Indigenous communities in order to apply the Traditional Knowledge labels created by Local Contexts in conjunction with open licenses to OERs with the goal of fostering culturally appropriate uses of Traditional Knowledge in non-Indigenous contexts. The research was grounded in the Indigenous concept of relationality, or the connections that exist between all people and things while acknowledging that the primary concern of faculty members and Indigenous communities isn't that the Traditional Knowledge will be shared.
