Title: Documenting Indigenous Knowledge with Community Recording

Participants will learn the basics of using a handheld audio recorder for community recording in this interactive session. Community recording projects can encompass language documentation, oral history, traditional songs and stories, cultural practices, and much more. We’ll discuss the benefits of community recording projects, planning considerations, and how to create digital files that will last. Nick will provide a quick-start demo of the Zoom H6 Handy recorder and participants will co-create a checklist of inspiring practices for this work that will be shared after the session.
