The Design and Development of Digital Return Platforms for Northern Indigenous Heritage (PDF)

Digital Return Platforms for Northern Indigenous Heritage screan-cap_1062

Executive Summary

“… Digital return technologies offer Indigenous communities a means of repatriating objects and knowledge gathered from their ancestors as part of earlier colonial endeavors. Many third party institutions such as museums, universities, and government heritage agencies, retain possession of these collections because of the perceived impracticality of returning them to source communities.
The concept of digital repatriation or “digital return” has emerged as a means of rebuilding relationships between source communities and third party institutions through the transfer of knowledge and objects in digital form. In this way, digital return systems, such as online archives, electronic atlases and digital databases, are excellent examples of disruptive technologies.
The idea of disruptive technologies was first popularized by Clayton Christensen in his 1997 book “The Innovator’s Dilemma”. Disruptive technologies are technological innovations that upset networks supporting the existing state of affairs. Digital return acts as a disruptive technology because it disrupts established institutional models for archiving, accessing, and interpreting objects and cultural knowledge.
Paradoxically, digital return also disrupts traditional Indigenous networks that support how objects and cultural knowledge are accessed and circulated by making them freely available on the public Internet . Resolving this paradox requires that we identify and address existing knowledge gaps in both the sociocultural and technological sides of digital return.
A three-part scoping review of Indigenous digital return projects in regions of the North American and European Arctic was undertaken to: a) identify the extent and objectives of academic, government, and community-led digital return projects; b) characterize the digital return methodologies currently used in arctic communities; c) identify the issues and challenges facing digital return projects within the study area; and d) draw attention to heritage initiatives that are grass roots and community led.
The methods used in this study include: a) bibliometric analysis of electronic databases; b) online surveys of digital return projects; and c) a case study of community-led heritage organizations and their projects. …”

To her students, she is a role model, one who has attained a balance between two worlds. To herself . . . well, she knows she can never be the kind of Inuk her elders were, but, with all due respect, she doesn’t want to be. And she never could be a “qallunaaq” (white person). …”

Like an iceberg, 1996, “Hard Lessons” on Journalism in Nunavik, Quebec

Like an iceberg, 1996, “Hard Lessons”.


“…The story I write about this school enrages the school commissioners, who see government officials looking at my figures and cutting subsidies as a result.

In the printed article, I mention all the names, all the sources. The teacher I’ve quoted calls me in desperation. He’s worried about his job. I feel terrible about the difficult position I’ve put him in.

“No one says that what you’re saying isn’t true,” a sympathetic school board official said. “But they don’t want to have it in the Ottawa Citizen.”

I think again about those words as I sit at the annual general meeting of Makivik Corp. in Inukjuakmap_inukjuaq which takes place the same week that the school story gets published and circulated by fax around Nunavik.

“Journalists lie,” I heard the familiar droning voice of the interpreter say through my ear phones. “And these journalists sit here and pretend to listen.”

It’s J. talking at the mike, and he’s talking about me. I’m taking down his words, but they begin to look like ants crawling over my paper.

I stayed with J. and his family in their Nunavik home the previous year for 10 days. J. played video games almost constantly on a Game-Boy. He also butchered a caribou leg into filets with delicate dexterity.

When I asked him about a charismatic display at the end of a local Anglican church service, with crying, gestures, member of the congregation speaking in tongues, “it’s our culture,” he said.

Two days before this meeting where J. stands now to denounce me, I had run into him as he was riding around on a snowmobile here in town. It was like seeing an old friend. But now he’s speaking against me in front of 150 people in this cavernous gym….”

Showing their skills: Arviat students earn 12 medals, two invites to national Skills Canada event

See on Scoop.itInuit Nunangat Stories

The Arviat students took home medals in the categories of TV/video production (Innosar Issakiark and Shelton Nipisar coached by Gord Billard), baking (Vayda Kaviok and AnneRenee Angalik coached by Susie Johnson), cooking (Ramon Kaviok and Jonathan Kigusiutnak coached by Mike Johnson), hairdressing (Gwen Ishalook and Gabai Kaludjak coached by Celeste White and Kimberley Dymond), esthetics (Sherilyn Sewoee and April Kablutsiak coached by Annette Atkinson) and photography (Avis Mukyungnik and Amanda Pingushat coached by Steve Penney).

Issakiark and Nipisar were invited to the national in TV/video production, while Vayda was invited for baking.

Billard said the number of participants at this year’s Nunavut event was lower than usual.

He said there were only 41 competitors in 10 categories, both down significantly from past years.

“There was only one team in four different categories, so, by default, they received a gold medal,” said Billard.

“Our TV/video production entry was one of those, but our little team produced a video good enough to qualify for the national, so I’m tickled pink.




Northern_Clips‘s insight:

The Arviat youths garnered 12 medals and a pair of invitations to the Skills Canada national competition in Vancouver, June 5-8.
