Our Commitment to Fair Representation
With the nature of Forager regarding the promotion of global cultures we have made the easy decision to have fair and respectful representation of Indigenous voices. Whenever available, an expert that's also a member of the community can add another layer of authority to the story while also respecting the holders of cultural knowledge.
Respecting Cultural Sensitivity
Traditional Knowledge is an important and sacred facet of cultural identity. While we work to promote this knowledge with the global community we also recognize and respect the reluctance to publicly share knowledge that for many communities has been used without consent and with a disregard for knowledge keepers and the implications to communities for having knowledge taken from their control. We work only with knowledge that has already been shared publicly, either academically or to the general public, or with knowledge that has been shared with us with the consent of the community who recognize and approve of our intentions.
