|Tuesday, November 29, 2016Leading the Movement: Collaboration between Museums and Native American Communities|
Museums and Native American communities are increasingly engaging in collaborative work, both at the museum and in community-based initiatives. From arts revitalization to the documentation of collections, museum staff and community members are sharing expertise and perspectives, and creating a new movement in the field of museology. In response to a growing interest in this work, an online resource for collaborative work has been developed over a three-year period of critical discourse among Native and non-Native museum professionals, cultural leaders, artists, and scholars. An initiative of the Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) at SAR, with additional support from the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), the guidelines present principles and practical considerations for meaningful engagement between museums and Native American communities. The guidelines are comprised of two parts: Part 1: Community + Museum is intended for communities currently working with, or considering working with, museums. Part 2: Museum + Community, is geared toward conservators and other museum professionals interested in, or currently engaging in, collaborative work with Native American or other communities. In October, during the Annual Conference of the Association of Archives, Libraries, and Museums in Phoenix, AZ, the new on-line resource containing the downloadable Community + Museum: Guidelines for Collaboration was officially launched.
