Built by and for the Karuk People, the Sípnuuk Digital Library, Archives, and Museum facilitates culturally appropriate access to, control over, and preservation of Karuk heritage. In their 20-minute presentation, the speakers expose barriers hindering access to their own story and demonstrate the alternative route they've taken via Sípnuuk. Forty minutes of dialog with session attendees allows for an exchange of ideas, pragmatic solutions, and pathways to liberated Tribal archiving.
