Protocols for Native American Archival Material (USA)

Created in 1997, these protocols were designed to help non-Native collecting institutions engage with Native American communities, librarians and archivists regarding intellectual property, ethics, preservation, handling, access and use of Native American archival resources in their collections. The protocols are intended to encourage consultation regarding policy and practice issues as well as to increase awareness of Native American sovereignty, intellectual approaches and community protocols.
