Mukurtu Hubs: Sustaining and Empowering Community Digital Stewardship with Native American and Native Alaskan Communities

Technical improvements to the Mukurtu Content Management System and the addition of two additional community hubs for Native American and Native Alaskan communities located in southern California and Alaska.

This project seeks to expand the digital and human infrastructure necessary for the ongoing development, deployment, support, and training related to Mukurtu CMS—a free and open source content management system and community digital access platform built with and for Indigenous communities globally. Now in its second decade of development, Mukurtu CMS is an established digital platform used to empower and sustain the ethical circulation, curation, management and preservation of cultural heritage materials and traditional knowledge, including endangered languages and digitally repatriated cultural materials. The proposed project will expand the current Mukurtu Hubs program from four to six regional hubs, and extend the Mukurtu CMS software to provide increased capacity, infrastructure and support to Native American and Native Alaskan communities as they seek to manage, share, and provide access to their valuable cultural, linguistic and historic materials.
