AN INDIGENOUS WOMAN'S MAP OF THE CITY: INDIAN SPACES IN PROGRESSIVE ERA WASHINGTON, D.C.
4:30 pm Tue, Apr 12, 2016
Most Americans in the Progressive Era believed that Indians were incompatible with cities. But Native people were joining the flood of people moving to urban areas for job opportunities and in response to federal polices. Washington, D.C., the capital city from which federal Indian policy was helmed, became home to a vibrant Indigenous community. This paper traces the networks, maps, and strategies used by that community, especially Native women, to navigate the city and carve out Indigenous spaces for themselves.

Digital Knowledge Sharing:
Collaborations Between American Indian Communities and the American Philosophical Society
Wednesday, September 19
4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Timothy Powell will discuss an innovative new project at the American Philosophical Society that rethinks the relationship among scholars, archives, and indigenous communities. The APS is working closely with Ojibwe First Nations in Canada, the Tuscarora Nation, the Penobscot Nation, and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians on a project called “digital knowledge sharing.” Contemporary research on indigenous cultures often requires working collaboratively with American Indian Nations. The APS project brings Native American elders, tribal historians, and teachers to Philadelphia on a regular basis; these fellows digitize archival materials (including audio recordings, images, and text) and take them back to their communities for language and cultural revitalization. In return, the partnering tribes have provided highly valuable information about the materials in the APS collections. This collaborative model offers an exciting model for scholarship in many different fields, including history, anthropology, literature, art history, linguistics, and American studies.
Dr. Timothy Powell is a faculty member in the Religious Studies Department at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Powell also serves as Director of Native American Projects at the American Philosophical Society, where he currently directs an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant to digitize the entire Native American audio recordings collection, which totals more than 3,000 hours.
