We work in a complex bicultural landscape, and navigating it from within a colonial institution is a journey in itself. @aucklandmuseum is supported by the Taumata-ā-Iwi (Māori Committee) who provide cultural safety to our staff and the taonga in our care: aucklandmuseum.com/your-museum/ab…
@aucklandmuseum Established in 1996, the Taumata-ā-Iwi was founded upon the principle of mana whenua (customary authority of and over ancestral land, in our case Pukekawa Auckland Domain), and is composed of members of the Ngāti Whātua, Ngāti Pāoa, and Waikato Tainui iwi.
1/ Hi everyone! Today we’re going to take a bit of time to talk more about protocols, permissions and some Indigenous-led projects and resources relevant to the #GLAM sphere. And we’re going to start talking about #metadata!
2/ As we’ve mentioned, in many Indigenous knowledge systems, a person’s right to access certain information (especially traditional knowledge and customs) may be bound by specific, contextual permissions. #OpenGLAM
3/ Here’s an example relevant to the G in #GLAM: the proceedings from @_FPCC's Cultural Protocols & the Arts Forum in 2014. As the late Dr. Greg Younging said, “Protocols provide guidelines for behaviour.”
1/ Happy Wednesday afternoon @OpenGLAM community! Today we're hoping to talk a little more about the L and the A in #GLAM: #Archives and #Libraries and some of their experiences with #OpenAccess re. Indigenous materials and belongings :)
2/ #Openness & #access are inseparable & access is a core value of librarianship & the archival profession. In both the American Library Association @ALALibrary Core Values & Int'l Federation of Library Associations & Institutions @IFLA Code of Ethics access is @ the forefront.
3/ The ALA’s Core Values of Librarianship state that "all information...should be readily, equally, & equitably accessible to all library users." Likewise IFLA pinpoints Access to Information as the core mission of librarians & other information workers.
