407 - Addressing Intellectual Property Needs for the Oldest Native American Recordings: A Case Study

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The American Folklife Center (AFC), its academic partners, and members of the Passamaquoddy tribe are engaged in a collaboration to apply Traditional Knowledge (TK) labels for cultural attribution to digital preservation recordings of wax cylinders recorded by anthropologist Jesse Walter Fewkes in 1890. These cylinders represent the earliest known ethnographic field recordings in the world. AFC sees this kind of collaboration as central to a new paradigm of classification, curation, and methods of access for indigenous materials.
