Radio Preservation Task Force: From Archive to Classroom

Mass-media historians and archivists in the first national attempt to assess the history and record of radio in the United States. Livestreamed sessions included “Indigenous/First Nations Radio” and “Material & Digital Curation.”

Indigenous/First Nations – Friday, 9:10-10:45 (Montpelier)
This panel will address one of the “areas of deficiency” in existing archival radio collections: indigenous/first nations radio. Presenters will discuss the logistics of actual institutional work, describe specific radio work that has captured important political or cultural events, or talk about available collections and areas of study available to researchers. The discussion will reference radio, but it may also feature many cultural historians who work among multiple media.
