Abstract: In this paper, we examine the use of indigenous languages for transference of not just knowledge, but also culture and the relation between context and peculiar nature of indigenous, traditional and local knowledge itself. The paper includes two sections: a performance section and academic section with a view to capturing the authentic voice of the performer and exploring the narrative and linguistic elements in the performance. While the presentation itself will be interactive, the paper will try to encapsulate the concerns of IK systems and the use of technology for preservation of these systems.
