So, what exactly is ‘traditional knowledge’?:
“Bill Erasmus, the Grand Chief of the Dene Nation…maintained that traditional knowledge should be called “Dene science”, but when we asked how its methodology compared with modern research, he gave the following comments:

I call it Dene science because in the literature {?}, it is regarded as a science… For example, we have been trying to explain…how the mind of the people works

The scientific process we talk about is very complex. It takes a lot to describe… It is a science. There’s a method to the way people work

We’ve managed to survive all these years… This is how society works…”

{The edits actually make it more ‘intelligible’…}

Frances Widdowson and Albert Howard (National Post)

Widdowson and Howard:

“Two underlying assumptions can be discerned about the nature of traditional knowledge vis-a-vis science. The first is that the existence of traditional knowledge is dependent upon the undefined qualities of the person who allegedly holds it. All that is explained is that is is impossible for certain people…to have this “knowledge”. Secondly, traditional knowledge has a “world view” that is rooted in native spirituality.

Unlike physical science, ‘traditional knowledge’ assumes that all objects in the universe are governed by spiritual forces that cannot be seen by a ‘white’ man
This makes it incompatible with modern research, since scientific methodology attempts to verify hypotheses by using evidence that is open to evaluation.

“Scientific understanding does not rely on the alleged “spiritual qualities” of a scientist, or processes that are visible only to people of a certain racial ancestry. ‘Postmodern’ rhetoric like “cultural context” and “cyclical thinking“, however, acts to mystify the true character of traditional knowledge, preventing the implications of its use in public policy from being understood.”

–‘Education: Honouring the Ignorance of Our Ancestors’,
Frances Widdowson and Albert Howard, “Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry” (2008),
p. 191-214

“…when the two worked advising the Northwest Territories government in the 1990s. The territory had incorporated into official policy something called ‘traditional knowledge’, requiring departments to include the spiritual folklore of Inuit and ‘First Nations’ culture in decision-making about resource management — say, approving mines or setting hunting quotas.

“Appalled at the melding of supernatural beliefs with government policy, the two published an essay in the Institute for Research on Public Policy’s journal, ‘Policy Options’, arguing that traditional knowledge made bad policy; its amorphous nature meant it

can be used to justify any enterprise, including the over-exploitation of resources.”

“For this, Ms. Widdowson was suspended from her government job.

“In a letter appealing to the deputy minister of the department, she reasoned:

Do you think that I should integrate the [native myth] idea that wolves create caribou — and that animals ‘present themselves’ to be killed — with my current understanding of evolutionary biology? Should the department encourage renewable resource officers to throw beaver fetuses into lakes so that they can be ‘reborn’? This is exactly what the traditional knowledge policy is directing employees to do.”

“Her contract was not renewed…”
