Incorporating Indigenous Ways in Archival Policy and Procedure Development 

Panel Discussion with Yukon Presenters

This panel will explore the policies and procedures developed by the Yukon Council of Archives' Yukon Self-Governing First Nations members. With the increasing awareness of Indigenous records through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's (TRC) Calls to Action and other Indigenous activities across the world, YCA would like to take this opportunity to create a safe space to share some of our members' archival policies and procedures. This workshop will invite discussion on current practice in Indgenizing Canadian archives and how we can move Reconciliation efforts forward. YCA hopes by sharing our members' experiences in policy-making, it will encourage others to share similar efforts. Together, we can create policies that honour Indigenous perspectives relating to the care of their Nations' records. 

An opening statement acknowledging the workshop's location in the Traditional Territories of the Kwalin Dün First Nation and the Ta'an Kwä'chän Council will be given.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:

  1. Be better informed on the obstacles and parameters of creating archival policies and procedures relating to Indigenous archival heritage institutions and holdings.
  2. Have a better understanding of what it means to "Indigenize" archives and how that can be reflected in archival policies and procedures, using Yukon Self-Governing First Nations as case studies.
  3. Have an increased awareness of the developing critical discourse on Indigenization in the Canadian archival discipline.

Angela Code will be the mediator.
Angela Code is a member of the Sayisi Dene First Nation. She was born in Churchill, Manitoba and spent her childhood in her home Indian reserve at Tadoule Lake, Manitoba. There, she was surrounded by denesuline (Chipewyan Dene) language, culture, family and community of her people. The Sayisi Dene are caribou people - much of their identity is directly linked to their traditional territory and living off the land.
