Webinar: Centering Relationality in Indigenous Knowledge Organization
|Title:||Centering Relationality in Indigenous Knowledge Organization|
About the webinar
Relationality, or the acknowledgement that we all exist in relationship to each other, is at the core of understanding Indigenous perspectives in the library and information science (LIS) field. In this talk, Dr. Littletree will discuss a conceptual framework that centers on the concept of relationality, a framework that can be used to understand Indigenous systems of knowledge in the LIS context. Littletree’s work contributes to the body of research that documents what Indigenous librarians, archivists, and technologists are doing to make spaces for Indigenous perspectives at the practical, conceptual, and theoretical levels. Understanding Indigenous systems of knowledge as an intellectual construct may inform better practices for knowledge organization for Indigenous cultural heritage.
