PHOTOGRAPHS, GENERATIONS & INUIT CULTURAL MEMORY: ASSESSING 15 YEARS OF PROJECT NAMING
PROJECT NAMING will be taking place at the Library and Archives Canada and Carleton University from March 1 – 4, 2017.
“Project Naming enables Indigenous peoples to engage in the identification of photographs from Library and Archives Canada.
LAC hopes that members of the public will share their knowledge. If you know the names of people depicted in our photographs or have information about an activity, event or place, LAC would love to hear from you.
The majority of individuals depicted in the images in LAC’s collections were never identified. Many archival descriptions relating to events or activities are absent or have dated information (e.g. place names, band names or terminology). Or information is based on original inscriptions and captions found on the records, and hence reflects the biases and attitudes of non-Aboriginal society at the time.” (more info here)
