This paper details the progress to date of the Indigenous Knowledge Systems Lab (IKS Lab) at Deakin University in establishing organisational processes and methods of inquiry grounded in Indigenous protocols. Continuity of traditional knowledge and practice in the Lab requires a deep-time perspective of complex systems both local and nonlocal, ensuring that ancient psycho-technologies are retrieved forward for context-dependent, collectively responsive thought leadership and projects stewarding relational systems increase during phase shifts anticipated from future inflection points of wicked proportions. This work requires abductive reasoning, the eradication of discrete discipline boundaries, continuous adaptive responsiveness, distributed authority, agentic dyads of individual and group sovereignties, kinship protocols for solitary/pair/group/multigroup activity, traditional embassy protocols for dialogue between diverse systems and traditional Law-based principles translated into propositions that can inform innovative systems functions and theory.
