Indigenizing Archives and Recordkeeping: Mnidoons Giizisoonhg

14 Nov 2019 10:30 AM | Anonymous

Beginning this month, ACA will now host regular Indigenizing Archives and Recordkeeping posts (previously posted to Arcan-L). These posts are full of links to news articles, blog posts, videos, and podcasts pertaining to Indigenous people and colonization issues of relevance to archives and cultural heritage. As you can see, there is a lot going on! These links have been collected and are graciously provided by ACA member Richard McKibbon. If you have resources to add, please let us know!

In the Ojibwe calendar, this is the month of Mnidoons Giizisoonhg – Little Spirit Moon. The twelfth moon of Creation is the Little Spirit Moon, a time of healing. By receiving both vision of the spirits and good health, we may walk the Red Road with purest intentions, and we can share this most positive energy with our families and friends for the good of all.

If you’d like to learn more about Indigenous languages and the moon cycle, you can check out this resource from the Ontario Native Literacy Coalition: https://onlc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/13-Moon-curriculum2.pdf


The list is provided for reference only and the ACA does not guarantee the accuracy or comprehensiveness of each resource, nor endorse a particular perspective. Our aim is only to provide opportunities for our members to learn more about Indigenous peoples and colonial issues.
