Abstract

Noongarpedia, like other Web 2.0 platforms, provides an opportunity for people to not only consume knowledge produced by others (much the same way as books offer) but also become producers themselves. This has allowed the presenters to work with over a dozen schools, three university groups, a natural resource management organisation and the state library to draw Noongar and non-Noongar community into their work. By inviting and training people in how to become contributors to the site, they have been able to strengthen Noongar knowledge networks and communities.

In this session the presenters spoke about the work over the past three years and provided a practical demonstration of how Noongarpedia works, how you can create articles and edits, how you can upload your own images, audio and video clips. They gave the audience a chance to see how they might make use of a free, technologically supported platform like Noongarpedia in their work to strengthen language communities and honour the strong intellectual traditions that abound in Indigenous culture
