For this workshop we worked with Alutiiq Museum – Kodiak, Alaska; Kodiak History Museum – Kodiak, Alaska; and the Goldbelt Heritage Foundation – Juneau, Alaska. The workshop took place at the Kodiak Public Library.
We had a small workshop with seven participants; however, we inventoried a whopping 155 assets during the day on formats including grooved audio disc, shellac, miniDV, compact audio cassette,VHS, DVD, Mini disc, ¾” u-matic. The collections contained language recordings and instruction, recordings of traditional song, and panel discussions with elders. A highlight of the day included finding a recording of a participant’s great great grandmother.
