KTK-Belt’s Indigenous Knowledge Portal was created in 2016 in an attempt to capture, display, celebrate and conserve the incredibly intricate array of local knowledge held by farmers from the KTK-Belt landscape. It was also an attempt to portray the kinds of knowledge that have helped millions of farmers adapt to climate change and exist ‘off the grid’ without pharmaceutical medicines and without marketplace products for generations. It is the kind of locally produced and perpetuated knowledge system that represents true resilience.

As a part of the Indigenous Knowledge Portal project, the images, videos, and stories are a collective output of many hours of conversations between local village elders, and the youth documenting and sharing their own indigenous knowledge.
