Title: Building Projects that Matter Challenges and Opportunities of Native Land
Abstract: The Digital Humanities is a expansive field that touches on almost every sphere of human activity. The reach of the internet and analytical technologies make it possible to make arguments and present them to huge audiences. Native Land, the map of Indigenous territories begun in 2014, this year incorporated to become Native Land Digital, a Canadian not-for-profit. Native Land is growing and taking the next steps in its missions of education and decolonization. This talk will go over a number of challenges and opportunities Native Land has encountered and is still facing, in areas of theory, tech, funding, and project management.
