The proposed project will now digitize the collections already identified by Tribal partners at multiple repositories and return them to the Native American partners via the Plateau Peoples’ Web Portal and the Native Northwest Portal (TBD). Using Mukurtu CMSand the Mukurtu Metadata Transformation Toolkit, each Native partner will review, update metadata, assign protocols for access and Traditional Knowledge Labels to digitized content. This information will be shared with the non-Native repositories via Mukurtu’s Roundtrip thereby, providing a direct and sustainable pathway for ongoing digital returns, and culturally enhanced public records.
Kimberly Christen, WSU Professor and the Director of the Digital Technology and Culture Program, is PI for the grant.
