A talk with Dr. Loriene Roy, (Anishinabe), Professor, School of Information, The University of Texas at Austin and Whina Te Whiu (Te Rarawa), Curator, Te Ahu Museum, and Vision Holder for Raiatea Tribal Museum and Resource Centre, Aotearoa.

They will speak about some of the responsibilities, protocols, and necessary community serving roles of collecting for Native subject libraries and Native archives and museums. Also discussed will be the concept of integrating in this process a tribal worldview and cultural values first, and professional museum and library practices second, and how this might inform subject collecting and archival collecting at institutions broadly.
