Traditional knowledge has only recently touched the scientific chord of western academic knowledge. More and more researchers today are rotating towards it not only to fill gaps in existing societal knowledge but also to find original knowledge concepts and viewpoints for application in an up to date context. Since tribal groups and indigenous or local have lived within their local environments since time immemorial it is obvious that they do acquire a rich knowledge about nature. Hence, research on nature and environments is enriched by incorporating traditional knowledge of local indigenous or tribal people. Traditional knowledge finds echoes in some of the current philosophy of disaster management. I wrap up that traditional knowledge of traditional local or indigenous groups all over the world not only desires to be recognized, conserved and humdrum but also is to be incorporated into efforts to formulate effective disaster management strategies.
