Indigenizing Archives and Recordkeeping: MNIDOONS GIIZIS

24 Dec 2019 10:28 AM | Anonymous

Season's greetings in the month of Mnidoons Giizis. Please find below another collection 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 Giizis -- Big Spirit Moon. The thirteenth moon of Creation is a time of healing. Its purpose is to purify us, and to heal all of Creation, a process which may take a three month long spiritual journey. During this time, we receive instructions on the healing powers of the universe and transform into our own vision of the truth.

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.
