Posters on Indigenous Knowledge
A series of seven indigenous knowledge posters was launched by the LINKS Programme at the National Cultural Centre of Vanuatu in December 2008. These posters introduce important concepts and issues relating to knowledge in indigenous societies today. They are illustrated with case studies and images from around the world. The posters serve as a learning resource that strengthens awareness of the many opportunities and challenges facing indigenous knowledge holders. They may be used in a variety of educational settings within schools or the community.

The posters are available in English, French, Spanish and Bislama (Vanuatu).
