309 - Archival Education that Serves the Needs of Tribal Archivists and Communities: 3 Perspectives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Three archivist/ librarians, all with experience as educators or learners in undergraduate, graduate, and continuing archival education focusing on unique needs of tribal communities in the U.S., discuss collaborative methods to explore the current educational landscape and future possibilities. Responding to Indigenous needs and priorities in archival education is not a focus in many LIS programs and continuing education. The presenters hope to engage the audience in conversation about what our field can do to better serve Indigenous needs in archival education at all levels.
