Audiovisual Collections Care in Tribal Archives

To help improve stewardship of audiovisual collections the Community Archiving Workshop, in partnership with the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums, is providing five (5) tribal cultural institutions in the Southwest an opportunity to participate in a remote learning cohort. Organizations will come together for online training and be individually matched with a CAW mentor to: (1) Identify preservation needs for their AV collection, (2) Set attainable goals to inspect and inventory that collection, (3) Develop an audiovisual preservation plan for their organization.

  • Zuni Tribal Archives/ A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center
  • The Wyandotte Nation Cultural Center and Museum
  • Poeh Cultural Center Archives, Pueblo of Pojoaque
