An Examination of the Use of Image in Traditional Knowledge Research with Northwestern Canadian First Nations”
MetadataShow full item record
Recording of images and words has been integral to the documentation of the knowledge and wisdom of traditional land-based lifeways. Although recording of film images and video has been widely employed in traditional knowledge research, work that questions of how the images are used and “read” is largely lacking. I offer a reflexive examination of my own practice of documentation traditional knowledge of northwestern Canadian First Nations through film and video, and briefly review others’ use of image in recording and reporting traditional knowledge and related areas of culture and language retention.
