Indigenous communities seek and achieve empowerment and self-determination through the preservation, protection and revitalisation of their indigenous knowledge which have been eroded by colonization, western culture and more recently by globalization. Indigenous knowledge systems refer to the unique, traditional, local knowledge existing within a particular environment and developed around the specific conditions of people indigenous to a particular geographical area. The main aim of the study was to explore and describe the role of indigenous knowledge towards sexual and reproductive health and rights. Specifically, the study aimed at describing indigenous methods (practices) and values geared towards preserving sexual and reproductive health and rights.
