The Native American Archives Section and Human Rights Archives Section will hold a joint section meeting this year to discuss our experiences hosting instructional and interactive webinars over the past year. We will focus on the webinar our two sections hosted together, in collaboration with the National Native American Boarding School (NABS) Healing Coalition, regarding the dispersed archival records of Native American Boarding Schools and the work that NABS is doing to locate and aggregate this material. Our goal for our joint meeting is to share best practices, lessons learned, and additional resources for archivists working on similar projects or whose work centers around collections documenting marginalized communities and human rights issues. We will also dedicate time to discuss the topic of Indigenous and Tribal archivists and their work upholding and supporting tribal information sovereignty - a human right based on tribal nations' unique and distinct socio-political identities. There will also be time during this meeting for individual section updates, questions, and feedback.

This is a free event! RSVP required for Zoom security.
