Indigitization is a collaborative initiative between BC Aboriginal groups and academic partners from the University of British Columbia and the University of Northern British Columbia to facilitate capacity building in Indigenous information management.
This continuing program is committed to clarifying processes and identifying issues in the conservation, digitization, and management of Indigenous community knowledge.
The Indigitization Program provides resources through the Indigitization toolkit, enables community-led digitization projects through training workshops, identifies funding opportunities, and advocates for ongoing funding directly to Aboriginal partners for sustained cultural heritage management.
In addition, the Program seeks to grow and work with a network of practitioners around the globe to develop effective practices for the management of digital heritage by individual communities.
Institutional partners of Indigitization located at the UBC Vancouver campus are on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. Indigitization holds up our hands in thanks to the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm community members and Archives team for their continued knowledge sharing towards the development of the grant program and training materials.
Indigitization also gratefully acknowledges that the Northern BC Archives is situated on the traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh people. In-person workshops have been conducted in this land, bringing together people representing several First Nations. The Archives coordinates support for northern participants of the program through their dedicated relationships with Indigenous communities in the region.
