The Convening Culture Keepers is a series of networking and professional development mini-conferences with the goal of supporting the delivery of culturally relevant information services in the American Indian communities of Wisconsin. The conference series is produced through the collaborative efforts of the UW-Madison School of Library and Information Studies – Continuing Education Services (SLIS-CES) and Wisconsin’s tribal librarians, archivists, and museum curators. Learn more about the history of the Convening Culture Keepers.
The daylong biannual gatherings of the Convening Culture Keepers – coordinated by SLIS-CES and hosted by reservation-based partners – offer a format that provides increased geographic accessibility and emphasizes discovery through community sharing. To date, three tribal communities have hosted mini-conferences and a fourth is scheduled to take place at Forest County Potawatomi in Spring 2012. Learn more about past and future CCK conferences.
