2018 NASPA Annual Conference

Sharing the Indigenous Protocol Practice Policy

PC 53

The Indigenous Peoples Knowledge Community (IPKC) recommended that NASPA create policy and practice that improves the climate of its meetings by developing an official Indigenous Protocol Practice Policy. The intention of the policy is to advocate for the respectful usage of cultural materials; and understanding of the importance of protocol when dealing with local Indigenous communities. Presenters will identify the motivations for and the process undertaken and the positive outcomes of this policy development.
