Description

An essential contribution to Internet activism and a must read for Indigenous educators, A Digital Bundle frames digital technology as an important tool for self-determination and idea sharing, ultimately contributing to Indigenous resurgence and nation building.

By defining Indigenous Knowledge online in terms of “digital bundles,” Jennifer Wemigwans elevates both cultural protocol and cultural responsibilities, grounds online projects within Indigenous philosophical paradigms, and highlights new possibilities for both the Internet and Indigenous communities.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] welcome intervention into discussions of the digital age, where the rich possibilities and ethical practices coming from Indigenous scholars and cultural activists such as Wemigwans are sorely needed. This important new book is a kind of guide for scholars, activists, media makers, and visionaries as to how we might collectively imagine Indigenous cultural futures with mindful use of digital technologies across the globe." - Faye Ginsburg, director of the Center for Media, Culture and History, New York University


"This must-read book based on extensive research, dialogue, and consultation with Indigenous Elders, leaders, artists, and academics helps to address the new risks, ethical questions, and challenges for how Indigenous Knowledge can be accessed, appropriately used, published, and transformed using multiple communication and digital forms. It offers the protocols, stories, advice, practices, and wisdom from Indigenous Knowledge holders to help address the challenges and questions about how Indigenous Knowledge can live now and in the future in its divergent forms with new forms of technology." - Marie Battiste, author of Decolonizing Education and founder of the Aboriginal Education Research Centre, University of Saskatchewan
