"And just to keep this on track, what is your view on how we can incorporate indigenous knowledge without it becoming commercialised by the current licensing scheme?"
We can't and no one can. Knowledge, ideas, and concepts cannot be copyrighted to begin with. Now, specific expressions of those ideas certainly can be, but the underlying facts and ideas cannot. If the expression of those ideas is to be on Wikimedia, they must be under an open content license, allowing reuse without regard to purpose. If someone would prefer to put their work under an NC license, then a free-content project is not the appropriate place for it. Many other places are happy to accept NC-licensed material. But even then, reuse of the concepts and facts cannot be prohibited no matter what one does.
