The Relationship of Technology, Culture, and Demography
This chapter discusses the role of information technology and its application in the lives of indigenous peoples. We explore the role of technology as an agent of cultural preservation, the influence of IT on cultural erosion, and its implications on social inclusion and exclusion. We discuss briefly how indigenous peoples have engaged with technology in the past, followed by an introduction to issues of sovereignty. Intellectual and cultural property rights also figure prominently in this discussion.
