The assets and challenges of Indigenous archives today

Afterlives of Indigenous Archives presents the work of an international and interdisciplinary group of highly respected Indigenous scholars, researchers in the field of Indigenous studies and early American studies, librarians, curators, activists, and storytellers. Their essays offer a compelling critique of Western archives and their use in the development of “digital humanities.” Some describe digital projects and outline their relevance to the lives and interests of tribal people and communities, along with the transformative potential that access to online materials affords. The authors aim to empower Native people to re-envision the Western archive as a site of community-based practices for cultural preservation, and to offer Indigenous perspectives and new technological applications for the imaginative reconstruction of the tribal past, the repatriation of the tribal memories, and a powerful vision of an Indigenous future. This important and timely work will appeal to archivists and Indigenous studies scholars alike.

GORDON HENRY is a professor of creative writing and Native American and American literature at Michigan State University. IVY SCHWEITZER is a professor of English and women’s and gender studies at Dartmouth College.
