The result is ‘The Keeping Place’, a secure, customisable online platform that enables Traditional Owners to regain data sovereignty, apply cultural protocols, manage native title, improve governance and unlock social and economic opportunities for current and future generations. As part of the pilot project a new Indigenous owned and controlled not-for-profit company has been established to own and manage The Keeping Place. Indigenous groups that use The Keeping Place will become member-owners of this company.
The latest digital technology used in a culturally sensitive and relevant way to strengthen intergenerational cultural connections and inspire cultural identity.
A secure, customisable online platform with cultural protocols at the core that enables recognised individuals or groups to choose how their cultural information is captured, accessed and shared.
Providing PBCs with a secure and integrated information management system that can be used to manage membership information, agreement compliance, native title future act processes and heritage service provision.
Enabling the easy migration of heritage and cultural information held by other sources, such as resource companies, government agencies, museums and archives, universities and heritage consultants’ databases to the rightful custodians.
Providing Aboriginal corporations with a commercial asset capable of providing increased income through activities such as heritage service provision, cultural awareness training, cultural tourism businesses and land management projects.
Delivering an integrated system for Indigenous Australian’s, their communities, and PBC’s to build on their cultural knowledge and improve governance and decision making.
Creating training and employment opportunities for local Aboriginal IT administrators, technicians, heritage officers and language workers.
Delivering improved relationships between the mining industry and native title partners in the preservation of Aboriginal cultural knowledge.
Following completion of the pilot project The Keeping Place platform will be made available to all Traditional Owner groups seeking to establish their own private, secure and self-managed digital cultural centre within The Keeping Place.
Building on the combined experiences of Traditional Owner user groups, the platform will continue to evolve to meet the varying needs of groups across the country.
