Abstract: This Handbook is a guide for people who are involved in natural resource management (NRM). It will help people work strongly with Indigenous Ecological knowledge (IEK) and Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP). The Handbook provides information, and creates awareness about working between IEK, NRM and ICIP. This can help to make sure Aboriginal peoples’ cultural knowledge and practices are respected and protected. At the same time, it can also assist in land, heritage and environmental management and conservation. This Handbook is a guide for Aboriginal people, to: > Understand how intellectual property can be used to benefit you; > Prevent other people wrongly using your culture and knowledge; and > Strengthen the use and practice of your knowledge on country. Many Aboriginal people, communities and organisations throughout the Northern Territory are thinking about, or are developing enterprises that use bush products and cultural knowledge. They are seeking ways that this work can be supported. Others may wish to find better ways to support the maintenance and protection of their cultural knowledge and practices on country. Support for on-country transfer of knowledge between older and young people is vitally important, and there needs to be more support for this.
