Dear AAO Members,
As you may remember, 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.
Due to overwhelming response we were unable to accommodate everyone in person. We are pleased to announce that recordings of all speakers are now available for viewing on the AAO’s website.
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; visit the Archives Association of Ontario’s YouTube channel to view recordings of the speakers and panels from this symposium.
