Digital Mapping and Indigenous America
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after March 23, 2021
In this book, contributors explore the technology and experience of digitally mapping the locations of Indigenous nations and issues related to Indigenous histories and cultures.
Employing anthropology, field research, and humanities methodologies as well as digital cartography, and foregrounding the voices of Indigenous scholars, this text examines digital projects currently underway, and includes alternative modes of "mapping" Native American, Alaskan Native, Indigenous Hawaiian and First Nations land. The work of both established and emerging scholars addressing a range of geographic regions and cultural issues, is also represented. Issues addressed include the history of maps made by Native Americans; healing and reconciliation projects related to boarding schools; language and land reclamation; Western cartographic maps created in collaboration with Indigenous nations; and digital resources that combine maps with narrative, art, and film, along with chapters on archaeology, place naming, and the digital presence of elders.
This text is of interest to scholars working in history, cultural studies, anthropology, Indigenous studies, and digital cartography.
