sense of belonging is a fundamental human need – as the story of Anne
of Green Gables, PEI’s most famous (fictional) daughter, so vividly
demonstrates. As peoples of many regions, ages, faiths, genders,
abilities, sexualities, racialized or ethnic backgrounds, we want to see ourselves, our stories, and our experiences reflected in the historical memory of the many environments to which we feel we belong. Archivists and archival practitioners now realize how many aspects of archival work contribute to peoples’ experiences of inclusion and exclusion in a community. Through our actions towards historical memory,people may or may not see their stories and experiences reflected, leaving them with feelings of belonging or disconnection, or at worst exclusion.
