This recording is from the 30 July 2020 launch of “Our Knowledge, Our Way: Indigenous-led approaches to strengthening and sharing our knowledge for land and sea management.”

The guidelines were created with contributions from more than 100 Indigenous individuals and organisations. The guidelines are based on 23 case studies that illustrate the critical principle that Indigenous people must decide what is best practice when working with their knowledge.

The guidelines were supported by North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd (NAILSMA) and CSIRO, and funded by the Northern Australia Hub of the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program (NESP). To learn more, and to see the full film, please visit:

“Our Knowledge, Our Way: Indigenous-led approaches to strengthening and sharing our knowledge for land and sea management.”

The Our Knowledge, Our Way guidelines were created with contributions from more than 100 Indigenous individuals and organisations. They support a step-change in learning, by both Indigenous peoples and their partners, about best practice ways of working with Indigenous knowledge to look after land and sea Country.

The guidelines are based on 23 case studies that illustrate the critical principle that Indigenous people must decide what is best practice when working with their knowledge.

The guidelines were supported by North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd (NAILSMA) and CSIRO, and funded by the Northern Australia Hub of the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program (NESP).

NESP research is helping the rangers at Mary River National Park in the Northern Territory turn this invasion around.
