During today’s opening ceremony and keynote by Walter Echo-Hawk at the 2012 International Conference of Indigenous Archives, Libraries, and Museums in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Bunky Echo-Hawk drew a fantastic, visual interpretation of the presentation. During my breakout session this morning on “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing,” I created an AudioBoo “no edit podcast recording” of my response to that drawing. In the presentation I made a mistake referring to Bunky’s tribal affiliations (Pawnee/Yakama) so I re-recorded the audio after the session with the correction. (Thanks to one of the session attendees for pointing this out to me afterward!)
Walter Echo-Hawk is the author of “In the Courts of the Conqueror: The 10 Worst Indian Law Cases Ever Decided.” I’ve added it to my Amazon wish list / to read soon list!
It was great to see Bunky’s artistic, visual interpretation of today’s keynote. The organizers of our conference have done a wonderful job blending artistic creativity and cultural expression with cognitive/cerebral learning opportunities.
I love living in Oklahoma where our cultures are so rich and diverse!
