Indigenous groups around the world are struggling to come to terms with the issues that an online environment poses to the presentation of the Indigenous past and present. In this IPinCH Community Initiative, the Mannum Aboriginal Community Association Inc. countered offensive and incorrect online information about the Ngaut Ngaut heritage complex in South Australia by creating their own interpretive content in which they shared community perceptions and values about this significant cultural landscape. The Ngaut Ngaut Interpretive Guide encourages visitors to "enjoy and respect Ngaut Ngaut...and open your minds and hearts to learn about our land, beliefs, and culture" and represents an innovative and sustainable community-based approach to cultural tourism.
The "Ngaut Ngaut: An Interpretive Guide" is an online booklet created to provide information about the Ngaut Ngaut heritage site in a collaborative, structured, and culturally-sustainable manner. The interpretive guide is part of IPinCH's Community Initative, "The Ngaut Ngaut Interpretive Project: Providing Culturally Sustainable Online Interpretive Content to the Public."
