Tribal Records Management 102


In this presentation, Bethany and Denise Redbird, both Records Managers at the Ho-Chunk Nation, provide an overview of basic and expanded tribal records management, including information on archival procedures, paper conservation, records storage procedures, records retention, standard operating procedures, disposition and the recycling of records to generate revenue. The presenters discuss how the Ho-Chunk Nation Records Management program has evolved and become very successful over the past two decades, as well as how to implement and maintain a successful tribal records management department.
