Cancelled: Bridging Knowledge Webinar: Indigenous Librarianship with Dr. Sandy Littletree


The Bridging Knowledge scholarship program invites MLIS students to join the BK Scholars for their next webinar, a conversation on Indigenous Librarianship with Dr. Sandy Littletree.

(Navajo/Eastern Shoshone) is an Assistant Professor focused on Native North American Indigenous Knowledge at the Information School at the University of Washington. Her research focuses on the emerging field of Indigenous information science, particularly Indigenous librarianship and the intersections of tribal sovereignty, technology, knowledge, and information in Native North America.

Littletree’s research is guided by Indigenous ways of knowing, that is, the ways Native people have been creating, transmitting, categorizing, and preserving knowledge since the beginning of time. Relationality is at the core of this approach, informing the structure, core values, and ethics of Indigenous information science. She examines institutions not just as repositories of information, but also as spaces that can maintain and support the continuation of Indigenous ways of knowing.

Littletree holds an M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from New Mexico State University, an M.S. in Information Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in Information Science from the University of Washington.

This program is part of a series of 12 supplemental curriculum webinars planned for the IMLS-funded Bridging Knowledge Scholarship program. It will be recorded and will be available from the Bridging Knowledge playlist on the iSchool YouTube channel, and the Sustainable Heritage Network’s website. Live Captioning will be enabled for this session.

The event will be rescheduled.

Individuals requiring real-time captioning/closed captions or other accommodations should contact Sue Alman as soon as possible.
