Passamaquoddy Reclaim Their Culture through Digital Repatriation

A recent New Yorker article by E.Tammy Kim highlights the collaboration between the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress and the Passamaquoddy in their efforts to digitally reclaim historical sound recordings.  In addition, there is an interesting discussion about the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials and the Mukurtu content management system.  Both the protocols and the sharing capabilities of Mukurtu have been invaluable to our work here at Yale, both in terms of meaningful engagement with our Native partners and enhanced visual and intellectual access to important primary source materials to the broader public.
