Indigenous Peoples and New Media

Last year I spent a considerable amount of time advising a Masters student working in HUMlab. Billy Marius is from Congo-Brazzaville (Republic of Congo) and he spent several years working and living with some groups from the Pygmy peoples. Last year we spent time working together on his D Paper An Experimental Dialogue Between the Sami and The Pygmy Peoples. It is online now on the HUMlab papers website. I am proud to have been involved with this project as it compliments other work I have done, with the Sami in the Jokkmokk 2004 project and my support and some work with the Traditional Knowledge Recording Project in Aurukun, Australia with the Wik Aboriginal People.
