[ISEA2006] Paper: Joline Blais – Indigenous Domain: Pilgrims, Permaculture and Perl

Abstract

Indigenous Domain discusses the limitations of current colonial paradigms for cyberspace which try to rope off “commons” or “reservations” for the public good, but which still operate within a larger colonial framework. The paper proposes alternatives to the prevailing colonial paradigm of the “commons” and “copyleft” based on models drawn from indigenous culture, permaculture and digital culture.
