Native Stories, Native Peoples: Opportunities for Library Engagement
Feb 15 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Native Stories, Native Peoples: Opportunities for Library Engagement

This webinar will highlight opportunities for library communities to foster understanding and support of Indigenous peoples, past and present.

The history and current experiences of Indigenous peoples and Tribal Nations are complex, rich and diverse. Libraries can play an important role in counteracting damaging myths and narratives about Native peoples, as well as exploring contemporary struggles and joys. This webinar will highlight opportunities for libraries to connect their communities to accurate and respectful information, fostering understanding and support of Indigenous peoples past and present. Resources for learning about treaties, Tribal Nations and lands, as well as insights into the experiences of Native communities today will also be shared. With a better understanding of these distinctive histories and cultures, library staff can promote learning and knowledge, support engagement with Native issues and peoples, and better serve all individuals in their community.

Presented by: Naomi Bishop, Health Sciences Librarian, University of Arizona’s Phoenix Biomedical Campus, and Akimel O’odham (Pima) from the Gila River Indian Community

  • Do you work with small and rural library staff?
  • Have you thought about how connected learning and small and rural libraries are a match made in heaven?
  • Do you want to learn more about connected learning and small and rural libraries and communities?

Did you answer “yes” to any of these questions?

If so, then ConnectedLibFEST is the event for you!

ConnectedLibFEST is the first ever event specifically focused on connected learning in small and rural libraries and communities. This virtual experience takes place on Wednesday and Thursday, March 15 and 16, from 1 PM to 5 PM Eastern.

Each day brings together library staff, researchers, and community members to learn from and with each other about bringing Connected Learning to small and rural library settings. Small and rural libraries are already using the principles of connected learning in their work. They do this by building relationships with youth, community members, and stakeholders; fostering interests of teens through library services; and creating opportunities for academic and life success.
