Bwgcolman (pronounced boog-a-man) Indigenous Knowledge Centre is owned and operated by Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council (PIASC). The Centre is part of a network of 24 IKCs throughout Queensland Indigenous remote communities. The IKC was officially opened on 9th July 2010 and is managed by Regina James, IKC Coordinator and Nina Clay, IKC Support Officer. Bwgcolman IKC received new items to refresh their current library collection courtesy of State Library. In 2018, Palm Island recently commemorated 100 years of their inspiring history which the IKC was instrumental in showcasing images and stories of this unique community.
