Talk on the Tribesourcing Project with Jennifer Jenkins, PhD
Museum of International Folk Art
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Sunday, March 1, 2020 2:00-3:30pm in the Vernick auditorium.
“Tribesourcing is a digital humanities project, where existing "social studies" films from the American Indian Film Gallery, made in the 1950s and 1960s are re- recorded with new narrations by community members and elders from Native American communities. This “tribesourcing” method allows for identification of local knowledge that might otherwise be lost, as well as providing a rich, community-based metadata record for each film.
Jennifer Jenkins, PhD, Tribesourcing Project Manager, and English Professor at the University of Arizona, will demonstrate the merging of old video and new audio in Mukurtu at Tribesourcingfilm.com and discuss what she has learned in the process of digitally repatriating these midcentury films.”
Join us on the First FREE Sunday of the Month for our all-ages program featuring storytime, Hands-on art activity and explorations in the galleries.

Join us on Wednesday, March 11, for a special demonstration with Dolores Lewis and her niece, Claudia Mitchell (both Acoma Pueblo). Dolores began practicing pottery making early in her life while Claudia is a relative newcomer, having started in 2013. Both potters benefited from the instruction and assistance of Lucy Lewis, Dolores’s mother, an accomplished and renowned Acoma potter who Dolores credits with helping to show her the way and encouraging her to keep this art alive. Dolores helped Lucy wet burnish and white slip her pots with the rocks she continues to use. Dolores and Claudia are committed to using resources found only at Acoma Pueblo, from the clay to the paints, and the fine yucca tools used for decorating each piece.
