The Mukurtu team will hold a full day, hands-on, workshop on Mukurtu CMS at the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums Conference, at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, MN, on October 9th, 2016.
This workshop focuses on the use of Mukurtu Content Management System (CMS) in tribal archives, libraries and museums. Mukurtu CMS, developed with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, is a free content management system that allows communities to preserve, share, manage, license and curate digital heritage and stories using their own cultural protocols, languages and social values.
In this workshop, participants will receive hands-on training in setting up a Mukurtu site, implementing Mukurtu's core features including a dictionary and mobile application, and the step-by-step procedures to curate digital heritage items utilizing Mukurtu CMS. Examples of Mukurtu in use in communities emphasizing preservation strategies, cultural protocols and the use of the Traditional Knowledge Labels will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring digital media to use during the workshop.
