Access + Care: Indigenous Knowledges and Archival Practice

On October 23, 2019, Deyohahá:ge: The Indigenous Knowledge Centre at Six Nations Polytechnic, the Archives Association of Ontario, and the Archives of Ontario held a one-day symposium exploring how memory workers and communities may respectfully care for and provide access to the many forms of Indigenous Knowledge. Its goal was to provide an opportunity to hear from Indigenous Knowledge Keepers, Elders, and memory workers and to explore linkages between Indigenous knowledges and Western archival practice.

This event was a joint venture of Deyohahá:ge: The Indigenous Knowledge Centre at Six Nations Polytechnic (SNP), the Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) and the Archives of Ontario, with generous sponsorship from the Toronto Area Archivists Group (TAAG).

This event was webcast live; recordings of the speakers and panels from this symposium will be made available online soon, and a link will be provided on this page. Please follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook to receive updates as we share materials from this event.
