Co-Luminating the Hidden: Indian Boarding School Records Curation


Efforts to digitize U.S. Indian Boarding School records are being led by visionary partners in the pursuit of truth in history. This session shares the premise and promise of making records available in a single online access point by implementing shared protocols for ethical stewardship and curatorial practice. Session attendees are encouraged to provide input to inform this work that can be expanded collaboratively. What research areas of the boarding school era need to be developed? What aspects and subject matter are appropriate for curriculum development? This session will shape the direction of these monumental collaborative efforts.

This session was part of the ATALM annual conference held in Temecula, California, on October 25-27, 2022.
