    Abstract

    Indigenous Technical Knowledge (ITK) is the local knowledge – knowledge that is unique to a given culture or society. It contrasts with the international knowledge system generated by universities, fisheries and animal husbandry research institutions, and private firms. It is the basis for local level decision making in agriculture, health care, food preparation, education natural resource management and a host of other activities in rural communities (Warren 1991). ITK is the information base for a society, which facilitates communication and decision making. Indigenous information systems are dynamic, and are continually influenced by internal creativity and experimentation as well as by contact with external systems.
