Indigenous knowledge in this paper is defined as the totality of local knowledge, tools and methods available to and used by a cultural group in producing items essential to its subsistence and comfort. Although this knowledge is important, little seem to have done to promote and utilize it neither has it been developed and documented for purposes of creating a data base. There has been lack of emphasis upon social and psychological knowledge in schools and teacher training colleges regarding indigenous knowledge, its use of, whether local or foreign. Geography education focusing on people’s daily experiences is w ell suited to integration of indigenous knowledge and technology. Integration has a pedagogical importance in that content and methods proposed promote social responsibility, citizenship, patriotism and social relevance which are among the key objectives of teaching geography.
