            As a young boy, Rory O'Connor's mother told him stories about his Uncle Billy Drumley’s visits to her home in Southport. He would walk from her birthplace in Beaudesert and camp in the mountains. 30 years later, Rory travelled the journey himself as a private show of recognition for his elder. The walk has become an annual event and attracts Indigenous and non-Indigenous people from across Australia. The Drumley Walk is a project of the Yugambeh Museum, Language and Heritage Research Centre. The Museum aims to record and promote the traditional knowledge of our region, especially the Yugambeh language, which was spoken throughout south east Queensland. In this video Rory shares some of his favourite places, food and stories from the walk route; incorporating Yugambeh language into his storytelling. This video was made as part of ABC Open's 'Mother Tongue' project, which aims to share Australia's first languages.. You can find more of these stories at abc.net.au/open

                Most indigenous people have traditional songs, stories, legends, dreams, methods and practices to transmit specific human elements of traditional knowledge. Sometimes it is preserved in artifacts handed from father to son or mother to daughter. In indigenous knowledge systems, there is usually no real separation between secular and sacred knowledge and practice - they are one and the same. In virtually all of these systems, knowledge is transmitted directly from individual to individual. "How do Native people define traditional knowledge?" by Patricia Cochran, Inuit * It is practical common sense based on teachings and experiences passed on from generation to generation. * It is knowing the country. It covers knowledge of the environment - snow, ice, weather, resources - and the relationships between things. * It is holistic. It cannot be compartmentalized and cannot be separated from the people who hold it. It is rooted in the spiritual health, culture and language of the people. It is a way of life. * Traditional knowledge is an authority system. It sets out the rules governing the use of resources - respect, an obligation to share. It is dynamic, cumulative and stable. It is truth. * Traditional knowledge is a way of life -wisdom is using traditional knowledge in good ways. It is using the heart and the head together. It comes from the spirit in order to survive. * It gives credibility to the people.

                  from UNUChannel Added 727 10 1

                  Energy L'Énergie Energía Энергия In addition to being owners of large carbon sinks, Indigenous Peoples and local communities are also actively participating in various other important mitigation activities such as producing renewable energies in their territories (wind, small hydropower and geothermal), and resource management projects that reduce pressure on natural resources and enhance local adaptive capacity. For example, in the United States, Indian tribal lands cover only 5% of land area but have the potential for about 535 billion kWh/year of wind energy which is equivalent to 14% of current U.S. total annual energy generation. In the Arctic, Indigenous peoples potentially have access to immense renewable energy resources - particularly wind and water - which are being explored as potential energy sources for the US and Canada.35 And the World Bank is currently financing major initiatives to scale up concentrate solar power in communities in the Middle East and North Africa. Emissions from developing countries are projected to increase substantially in the coming years. Energy decisions made by Indigenous peoples could therefore have a large influence on efforts to limit total global emissions. Indigenous and local peoples are participating in various important Clean Development Mechanism(CDM) projects.

                      Inuit men have experienced many changes to their way of life in just two generations. This has sometimes left Inuit men feeling lost and unsure of their place in the family and community. Their level of distress can be seen in the low school completion rates and high levels of incarceration and suicide. Men need a voice. They have important things to say and contributions to make. Programs and services for men – many created and led by men – are giving them an opportunity to seek help, better understand their needs and strengths, and revive their traditions and culture. In “Angutiilli qanuiliqpat? – How are we as men?,” viewers will see live discussions and stories of community programs that are helping Inuit men to improve their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This episode is the first of a three-part, live, public TV series, "Qanuqtuurniq – Finding the Balance," on Inuit health and wellness issues and solutions led by Inuit Tuttarvingat of the National Aboriginal Health Organization involving a number of partners. The series was broadcast in May 2009 on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network – North and 360North in Alaska, along with a simultaneous webcast. Over 350 people participated in some way in this initiative, which was a communications and outreach project for International Polar Year.
