Indigenous (Un)History Month: RavenSpace – Digital Publishing in Indigenous Studies

June is recognized as Indigenous (Un)History Month at UBC Library — a celebration and acknowledgement of the importance of Indigenous Peoples – not only in history – but in the present and future.

 

Exhibition: RavenSpace, Co-Creating Interactive Indigenous Studies Books 

June 1 to August 31

Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC), Level 2, 1961 East Mall

This collaborative exhibit showcases the first digital books to come from UBC Press’ RavenSpace, a new model of publishing for interactive, media-rich books in Indigenous studies, where communities and scholars can work together in a culturally respectful way:

  • Elsie Paul, with Davis McKenzie, Paige Raibmon, and Harmony Johnson, As I Remember It: Teachings (ʔəms taʔaw) from the life of a Sliammon Elder (UBC Press)
  • Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse, with Coreen Child, Kaleb Child, and Tommy Child of the Kwag’uł, Kans Hiłile (Making It Right): A Collaborative Reframing of Kwakiutl Film and Audio Recordings with Franz Boas (University of Washington Press)
  • Musqueam First Nation, Musqueam Stories Transformed (UBC Press).

Come and see how these publications – with animations, classroom resources, and multiple pathways through text and media – are made.
