This paper describes progress on the participative development of the Ieramugadu Cultural Information System - an example of an indigenous community information system. The project is designed to develop and evaluate innovative procedures for elicitation, analysis, storage and communication of indigenous cultural heritage information. It is investigating culturally appropriate information systems design techniques; multimedia approaches; and ways to ensure protection of secret/sacred information. Effective procedures and products to facilitate the use of heritage information for education and negotiation are also being developed and evaluated. The paper summarises project progress to date and draws preliminary conclusions regarding key aspects of the research.
