Subject: Join the Sustaining and Advancing Indigenous Cultures Council

Dear Ross;

With funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums is launching a strategic planning initiative to develop a unified approach for strengthening indigenous cultural institutions.

The project will be led by a National Strategic Planning Council that will oversee the development of needs assessment surveys, national Planning Summits, public meetings, and the development of a report on Sustaining and Advancing Indigenous Cultures.

If you are a subject area expert in any of the following, please consider joining the National Strategic Planning Council:

  1.   Archives and Records
  2.   Digital Inclusion Needs of Native Communities
  3.   Historic Preservation and Repatriation
  4.   Libraries
  5.   Museums and Cultural Centers
  6.   Native Language Programs and the Role of Cultural Institutions
  7.   Native Artists and the Role of Cultural Institutions
Specialists in the following areas are also sought:

  1.   Relationships Between Native and Non-Native Collecting Institutions
  2.   Oral History Programs
  3.   Federal Support for Indigenous Cultural Institutions
  4.   International Repatriation
The Planning Council will become an Action Council at the conclusion of the strategic planning activities and will work to implement the recommendations in the Report.
