Abstract: The challenge of how to stop the unauthorized use of Indigenous knowledge has been firmly
constituted as a problem to be solved by and managed through the legal domain. In this paper my questions
are directed to the way Indigenous knowledge has been made into a category of intellectual property law and
consequently how law has sought to define and manage the boundaries of Indigenous knowledge.
