Mukurtu Midwest is a regional hub that provides support and training in Mukurtu CMS and digital preservation to tribal and non-tribal cultural heritage institutions in Wisconsin. The Midwest Hub was established in partnership with the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University and with the support of IMLS on the Mukurtu Hubs & Spokes project.
The Midwest Hub will continue to support the creation and preservation of digital collections in Wisconsin’s tribal archives, libraries, and museums thanks to a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The three-year program, Curating Indigenous Digital Collections, funds a series of post-graduate fellowships to support knowledge preservation and language revitalization in Wisconsin Native Nations.
Mukurtu Midwest Hub staff are dedicated to a community-driven approach to preserving and sharing Indigenous heritage.
