Exploring Seductive Digital Cultural Technologies for Indigenous Youth
By Maria Kauhondamwa (Honours in progress)


maria3Indigenous knowledge and practices of Namibian tribes has lost value and attention among many local youth, especially in urban settings. Besides its cultural heritage value we postulate that indigenous youths could benefit from past wisdom. In this research we explore seductive design as a theoretical approach to entice indigenous urban youth to engage and record cultural insights. We have run two workshops with San youth to gain design inspirations for digital cultural technologies to be used and promoted among the youth. First non-functional prototypes are presented and evaluated.
