dc.description.abstractThe objective of this report is to explore the design characteristics for a repository of indigenous Amazonian digital cultural heritage objects. I first examine the design objectives in relation to the available collection of digital objects. I then analyze the characteristics and expectations of the user community, and the implications of these expectations for repository design. I report on the specific intellectual property rights (IPR) laws and ideals applicable to this collection. I review possible copyright and licensing systems to protect indigenous IPR. In particular, I discuss the Mukurtu content management system (CMS) and its associated Traditional Knowledge licenses. I then report on my efforts to use the Mukurtu CMS as a means for making the collection available to the user community and for long-term digital preservation. I conclude with ideas about how Mukurtu or a similar content management system could be used for long-term management and preservation of indigenous Amazonian digital cultural heritage.en
