Abstract:

Indigenous librarians around the globe are starting to organize action meetings. The first International Indigenous Librarians' Forum took place in November 1999 on the Waipapa Marae in Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand and was hosted by Te Ropu Whakahau ("they, who encourage and incite"), the Maori Library and Information Workers. The Second International Indigenous Librarians' Forum was held September 4-9, 2001 in Jokkmokk, Sweden at the Ajtte Swedish Mountain. Join us for a presentation and discussion of current issues that impact indigenous librarianship include the use of technology in communicating, documenting, and preserving indigenous culture; organizing library services for specific indigenous populations; and intellectual/cultural property rights.
