Local Contexts 2.0: Implementing Traditional Knowledge Labels

The development of a set of protocols, standards, tools, and resources relating to digital curation and stewardship of indigenous cultural heritage that would assist non-Native collecting institutions and local Native American communities to enhance access and management of knowledge about humanities collections.

This project aims to further develop extra-legal solutions to the curatorial challenges posed by Native American and First Nations collections in relation to access and expanding the public record. This Tier II Advanced Implementation Research and Development proposal will support the further development and implementation of the Local Contexts online platform (www.localcontexts.org). In its third phase of development, Local Contexts has already provided educational materials related to intellectual property rights, digital stewardships, co-curation, and a new set of innovative Traditional Knowledge Labels for both Native/First Nations and non-Native collecting institutions. This next phase would extend the platform to create a practical set of tools, models, and workflow for digital curation of Native/First Nations collections across stakeholders. This project will unite Native/First Nations and non-Native communities and institutions who manage and hold their cultural heritage by extending the existing Local Contexts platform into a national, institutional-wide model, focusing on the development and implementation of a new set of standards for providing access to, and structuring use of Native/First Nations cultural heritage collections online.
