FREE-Moving Beyond Colonial Models of Digital Memory Report

In 2017, Historypin worked closely with a group of tribal libraries in New Mexico and interviewed a group of cultural heritage professionals in Southern California. This was part of an IMLS Planning Grant: Digital Memory in Rural Tribal Libraries: A Program for Technology Training & Memory Gathering, grant LG-72-16-0113-16. Recognizing the problems with asking such a question as outsiders, and the potential of propagating colonial patterns of extraction and trauma, we asked Jennifer Himmelreich (Diné), someone with first hand knowledge and experience in this field, to lead the research. In working with our tribal partners, she very quickly turned the question around to have the research better suit their needs, asking instead, “how can community values inform digital strategy in tribal libraries, archives and museums?”
