The Digital Native American and Indigenous Studies Project

Three three-day workshops of 35 participants each hosted by Yale University, Northern Arizona University, and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) on teaching new digital methods and exploring issues of preservation and access in Native American Studies. 

The Digital Native American studies Project (DNSP) proposes to offer three three-day workshops that will educate participants on issues of digital humanities research and methodology in the context of Native American Studies. Native American Studies, an interdisciplinary field of study exploring the history, culture, politics, issues, and contemporary experience of indigenous peoples of America, intersects with a number of issues related to access, preservation, and methodology that are problematized through the development and deployment of digital tools and methods and the conduct of digital research. While tremendous work has been done around the preservation and access of analog materials within Native American communities, there has been much less attention paid to the ways in which digital objects, practices, and methods function within Native communities and through Native American Studies scholarship outside of the anthropological context. Each three-day long workshop will serve thirty-five participants drawn from academic, cultural heritage, and tribal communities.
