    Abstract:
    Gibagadinamaagoom, (To Bring to Life, to Sanction, to Give Permission), will bring together a diverse array of partners to discuss how state-of-the-art digital technology can be employed to translate ancient and sophisticated systems of traditional Ojibwe knowledge. Discussions will address the challenging, vitally important questions concerning how to design a digital archive that can be accessed using multiple interfaces. Partners include educational (including tribal colleges) and cultural institutions, native Ojibwe scholars, digital media experts, and a distinguished advisory board. These collaborative partners are well positioned to develop one of the most culturally sensitive Native American archives ever built. This project will contribute significantly to how digital technology can be used to revise academic, museum, and library protocols regarding cultural sensitivity, and enhance teaching and learning with a commitment to honor the cultural sovereignty of the Ojibwe.
    Notes:
    A series of planning meetings to redesign a digital archive of Ojibwe historical and cultural resources to allow for multiple user interfaces and more extensive categorization of materials.
