Indigenous Knowledge: Science and Technology Studies

FAKKIR.XYZ | JURNAL – Philosophers of science, activists, and practitioners of indigenous knowledge have debated the status of indigenous knowledge with respect to science. ‘Indigenous knowledge’ is often used synonymously with ‘local knowledge’ or ‘ethnoscience,’ indicating knowledge specific to a culture. Science and Technology Studies scholarship, however, suggests that all knowledge, including scientific knowledge, is specific to its context. The study of indigenous knowledge has had practical results, shaping the politics of colonialism, nationalism, postcolonialism, and globalization. Issues at the intersection of science studies and indigenous knowledge, such as the imbrication of nature and culture, the construction of scientific certainty, and the historical contingency of systems of knowledge, have cultural and political implications for peoples negotiating their interrelationships in a globalized world.
