20 Dec Launch! A Digital Anthropology Project on #Indigenous Cultural Revitalization

Mark the date: circleofvoices.com will be launching on December 20th! The contact form is already active on-site.

“Circle of Voices is a digital anthropological research project aiming to bring educational awareness about the situation of indigenous women and youths, and more broadly about indigenous rights. It was conducted with young women from the Atikamekw, Abenaki and Wolastoqiyik/Maliseet Nations in Quebec. It explores the process of cultural revitalization through four themes: land, language, art and spirituality. The activities entailed in the project are: participatory photography workshops; sharing circles; sound recordings and video clips of traditional practices; intergenerational dance workshops (fancy shawl); and personal narratives (biographical interviews).

circleofvoices.com is a tangible attempt providing an answer to: what is the potential of the web space to convey academic knowledge and invite indigenous expertise and perspectives?” http://circleofvoices.com/
