Indigenous Communication

Indigenous Communication: A Global Perspective

By Eno Akpabio

Indigenous Communication: A Global Perspective explores global forms of indigenous communication and their connections with new and digital media. With fresh and original insights, the book transcends the confines of regional analysis to investigate similarities, parallels, and differences present in indigenous communication practices around the world. It contributes to the ongoing revival of Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS). 

Through a systematic classification of these diverse methods, including music, myths, iconography, visual, institutional, and axiomatic communication, the author draws comparisons between geographically and historically disparate contexts. Indigenous Communication provides a rigorous conceptual clarification of indigenous forms of communication, showcasing their various manifestations and illuminating their relevance and transformative potential in the digital age.

Eno Akpabio is a Professor of Media and Communication at the University of Namibia and a member of IAMCR´s International Council.
