Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP)

NITV encourages the respect of, and consultation with, cultural custodians regarding their Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP).

If there are any images, artistic works, video clips, stories, songs, designs or any other tangible information published on the NITV website that contain ICIP, then the participant must obtain consent from the appropriate cultural custodians of that Indigenous community before publishing the material online.
