Webinar : Indigenous Cartography and Cartography of the Indigenous
Online (Miami), USA
"More Indigenous territory has been claimed by maps than by guns." — Bernard Nietschmann, 1995
Whether true or not, this statement underlines the importance of understanding how cartographic practices and performances form a part of the historical and contemporary Indigenous experience. Inquiry will focus on how maps are used as tools to claim power, territory, sovereignty, and identity, and how they are leveraged for conservation and natural resource management on Indigenous territory.
The experience from a recently taught course at the University of Miami will serve as a guide for this conversation. The geographic scope will be global with an emphasis on the Americas.
Featuring Timothy Norris, Data Scientist, University Libraries in conversation with Arthur Dunkelman Curator, Jay I. Kislak Collection, University Libraries
