Neubauer Collegium Director's Lecture | "Embracing a Complicated Relationship: Indigenous Museum Practices
Over the past 30 years, museum institutions have learned to engage with tribal communities more directly in the stewardship of their cultural materials. Stemming from federal mandates around the repatriation of human remains and objects of cultural patrimony, practices of consultation and recognition of community protocols have become more commonplace in museum venues. Despite these efforts, differing ideologies of care and collaboration between museum institutions and tribal communities remain an ongoing issue of negotiation and, at times, tension. Today the role of Indigenous curators, collection managers, and educators includes not only the maintenance of multiple standards of care, but also of relationships—relations with colleagues, institutions, and community, both living and ancestral. In this online dialogue, panelists will discuss the navigation of this complicated relationship and the concrete ways they uphold and implement Indigenous museum practices in their research, curation, and pedagogy.
