Join us to learn about digital storytelling and mapping from within Indigenous Nations. Participants will explore examples of Indigenized media and participate in a hands-on demonstration of mobile/map-based storytelling software tools, built in collaboration with Indigenous peoples and with an approach to dissemination. Dialogue will include sovereignty and visibility/invisibility in media, and how interactive and independent media function to provide agency within Indigenous communities.
