The aspect of an Indigenous body of knowledge adopted to guide the design, logic and creation of a 3d model artefact is a novel approach towards addressing at times complex problems for indigenous communities. The continued debate around decolonial theory surrounding the IT artefact, often challenged by institutional bias, power in-balances, or cultural naiveite by Western driven models of academia. In this article, I tackle the initialization stages of the indigenously organized 3d model artefact which, I contend, lacks an awareness for indigenous contextual information and the meta-data required to successfully construct a 3d model artefact. Here, I explore the importance of language where the goal is to implement indigenous contextual information that is tuned to identify indigenous Maori techniques during the initial design of the 3d model artefact. This leads to the study question; what skillset would be needed to establish the correct implementation procedures for constructing an indigenously framed 3d model artefact? Firstly, I consider a post-colonial approach towards technology in general reviewing the publications of indigenous scholars involved with decolonizing indigenous methods. Then, I implement a survey questionnaire to better-understand an array of indigenous language objects that may be useful during the construction of a 3d model artefact.
