Dr. Mishuana Goeman will address best practices and the primary tools involved in two projects. Mapping Indigenous LA aims to uncover the multiple layers of indigenous Los Angeles through storymapping with tribal Nations, Indigenous youth, community leaders, and elders from Indigenous communities throughout the city of Los Angeles to tell the muti-layered stories of placemaking. This collaborative research makes visible the rich Indigenous identities and histories that are often hidden within other racial formations yet deeply embedded in place through tools such as ArcGIS, Timemap, and Mukurtu. MILA tells a story of Los Angeles that looks at the relationship between people, place, and the environment. COAH (Carrying Our Ancestors Home) focuses on the process and diversity of returning ancestral remains and cultural items from museums to First Peoples and the impact of such repatriation on Indigenous communities, in part through digital story (Mukurtu and Nightlabs). An important teaching tool in American Indian Studies, archaeology, anthropology, and cultural material classes as it uniquely presents tribal voices.
