Join us for our upcoming panel discussion exploring the importance of repatriating belongings and intellectual property to indigenous communities.
This discussion will explore the changing perspectives in museum curatorial practices with respect to repatriation and Reconciliation. Moderated by Kate Hennessy (SFU), panelists Sharon Fortney (MOV), Kwiaahwah Jones (Guest Haida Curator for Haida Now), and Bruce Granville Miller (UBC) will share stories and engage in conversation around the importance of repatriating ancestral belongings and intellectual property to Indigenous communities. Panelists will explore possible strategies and unanswered questions, including addressing the relationship between technology and museums, and the role that digital experiences play in facilitating repatriation — in an effort to address how museums can become better places in the future for communities to share knowledge.
