00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:12.690
00:00:12.690 --> 00:00:22.560
Just in it's a national need
for responsible and thoughtful
00:00:22.560 --> 00:00:25.800
curation of Indian artifacts.
00:00:25.800 --> 00:00:29.700
And this program is just
over and above setting us up
00:00:29.700 --> 00:00:31.440
for success and those
kinds of things.
00:00:31.440 --> 00:00:37.330
00:00:37.330 --> 00:00:46.230
You know it brought us into
this space that was safe
00:00:46.230 --> 00:00:48.270
and it brought us
into this space
00:00:48.270 --> 00:00:55.480
where we may come from different
tribal communities, indigenous,
00:00:55.480 --> 00:00:57.850
but a lot of our world views
and a lot of our values
00:00:57.850 --> 00:00:59.200
are the same.
00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:03.520
And so it made it really easy to
talk about things that we might
00:01:03.520 --> 00:01:07.810
not otherwise want to share and
discuss in a broader context,
00:01:07.810 --> 00:01:10.190
in a larger community.
00:01:10.190 --> 00:01:13.300
I have learned as much
from the cohort members
00:01:13.300 --> 00:01:14.470
I have from the staff.
00:01:14.470 --> 00:01:20.100
00:01:20.100 --> 00:01:25.500
OK so Mukurtu it's got a whole
bunch of different elements
00:01:25.500 --> 00:01:28.020
to it that are beneficial
to the community.
00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:31.960
First being that we have a
large segment of our population
00:01:31.960 --> 00:01:35.490
that doesn't live close to
where our territories are,
00:01:35.490 --> 00:01:41.250
where our homelands are, and
so we feel like weohkwebjegen,
00:01:41.250 --> 00:01:44.310
our instance of Mukurtu,
can be used to help
00:01:44.310 --> 00:01:48.930
reach out to people that
live anywhere in the US,
00:01:48.930 --> 00:01:51.330
might be anywhere around
the globe, that they
00:01:51.330 --> 00:01:55.200
can plug-in to our stories
and our history, language,
00:01:55.200 --> 00:01:55.810
through that.
00:01:55.810 --> 00:02:01.330
00:02:01.330 --> 00:02:07.840
So really honoring and
upholding what that vision was
00:02:07.840 --> 00:02:10.630
of those who had come
before us, and many
00:02:10.630 --> 00:02:17.290
who are no longer with us, and
really the love that they had
00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:19.780
and the care that
they had to make sure
00:02:19.780 --> 00:02:22.630
that their wisdom
and their knowledge
00:02:22.630 --> 00:02:25.270
and their understanding
was documented.
00:02:25.270 --> 00:02:27.310
But it's not just
enough to document.
00:02:27.310 --> 00:02:29.470
We need to be able
to share that which
00:02:29.470 --> 00:02:31.500
was their original intention.
00:02:31.500 --> 00:02:35.260
So I'll be able, now, to
take those tools to be
00:02:35.260 --> 00:02:37.710
able to complete that circle.
00:02:37.710 --> 00:02:48.064
