Abstract: The goal of this exploratory study is to identify the methods and resources that can help create an information system for cultural heritage resources of an indigenous community. As they live in secluded, self-contained groupings and are completely different in terms of culture and ethnicity from modern cultures, the aboriginal peoples, who were India's first residents, are the least developed in terms of economic development and social standing.The management of cultural heritage resources can best be accessed and experienced when they are in operational condition, as it requires consideration of the lives and living conditions of local communities. Throughout history, many indigenous cultures have either disappeared or have been marginalised to the point of extinction due to colonisation, ignorance of modern civilizations, etc. This paper describes the creation and design of a prototype digital indigenous or aboriginal cultural heritage archive, as libraries, archives, and museums are capable of preserving, disseminating, and reusing such indispensable resources. Only open source software and open standards are being used as technical equipment to carry out this study. This prototype comprises the native indigenous community cultural heritage resources of the Rabha tribal group of the Eastern part of India as a proof of concept and considers the necessity of integrating such a system with the traditional library retrieval system for complex information management needs.
