This paper argues that we should focus on creating examples of indigenous HCI. This should be done by becoming more sensitive to regional and national differences in how work styles and interaction design across time and use merge, adapt, localize and reduce the ambiguity of the technology. A case of climate control is reported. The method is interpretive phenomenological analysis that focuses on idiosyncrasies. The climate control experience of a Danish expert is compared with the experiences of a similar Israeli expert. The conclusion says that many similarities exist, but also meaningful differences that should be the basis for Indigenous HCI design.
