This seminar brings together a collective of practitioners and thinkers in exploring how to Indigenize archives. The seminar acknowledges that national archives and art museums are often the result of colonial histories and logics, and therefore risk to affirm and reproduce historical injustices and trauma. Given that existing archives are inhospitable to Indigenous knowledges and practices, what possibilities exists for Indigenizing archives? How to build alternative architectures of remembrance premised on Indigenous ways of thinking and working, created through respect and celebration of these?

With Joar Nango’s Girjegumpi as a point of departure, this workshop, developed by Indigenous and non-Indigenous organisers, brings together researchers, artists, and makers to share hands-on approaches to developing alternative cultural infrastructures that support Indigenous self-determination and data sovereignty.
