2017 Audio Cassette Digitization Grant Recipients at the Museum of Anthropology

Indigitization is a BC based collaborative initiative between Indigenous communities and organizations, the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the Museum of Anthropology, Northern BC Archives (UNBC), and X̱wi7x̱wa Library, and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) to facilitate capacity building in Indigenous information management.

The Program is committed to clarifying community needs regarding the conservation, digitization, and management of Indigenous knowledge. It does so by providing resources like the Indigitization toolkit, and enabling community-led digitization projects through grant funding and training. Indigitization seeks to develop a network of practitioners who support community-led management of digital heritage.

Visual Identity and Logo

“Raven, a known trickster and transformer of material reality, is depicted here in the process of becoming. Raven is a shape changer, and like technology, represents the movement between fluid and structural form. Often identified with its capacity for mischief, I also like to imagine Raven appreciating the digital realm as a site for play and creativity.”

Alison O. Marks is a Tlingit artist born and raised in Southeast Alaska. As a child of two cultures, native and non-native, the artist brings a unique perspective to her art.” For more about Ms. Marks and to see additional works, please visit http://alisonomarks.com.

Indigitization Program Style Guide

The new style guide, developed for our new website, incorporates the amazing Raven logo, and adds a splash of blue and purple colours. Our style guide was developed by the Indigitization Steering Committee and Indigenous design company, Vincent Designs. Incorporating the style in the website, designer Schuyler Lindberg added blocks of colour against the white background in a variety of gradients between the purple and blue.
