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!

This 75 minute panel discussion will provide perspectives from three different archivists and 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.  Sandy Littletree will share experiences and educational approach when teaching the Indigenous Systems of Knowledge course at the University of Washington Information School. She will also share perspectives on recruiting and retaining Native American students based on her experience as Program Manager of the Knowledge River program at the University of Arizona from 2009-2012. Lotus Norton-Wisla will present on the Tribal Stewardship Cohort Program at Washington State University’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation. Josiah Black Eagle Pinkham will share his experience working in the Nez Perce Tribe’s Cultural Resources Program, and his time as a participant and host in the Tribal Stewardship Cohort Program. There will be time at the end of the panel for concluding thoughts uniting the three different presentations, as well as time for questions and discussion. We hope to engage the audience in conversation about what our field can do to better serve Indigenous needs in archival education at all levels.
