Indigenizing Archives and Recordkeeping: MIKISIWI-PIISIM

20 Mar 2020 4:05 PM | Anonymous

After a brief hiatus, we are happy to share another post full of links to news articles, blog posts, videos, and podcasts pertaining to Indigenous people, cultures, and issues. These links have been collected and are graciously provided by Alison Little, Senior Coordinator of Educational Programming and Exhibitions at the Archives of Ontario. 

For the year ahead, we’ll be connecting these emails with the Moose Cree lunar-based calendar, where new year begins in March with Mikisiwi-piisim (Eagle Moon). The moon of March signals the return of the first migratory birds (those with talons), and with them the start of a new annual cycle. 

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.
