Indigenous, Ethnic, and Cultural Articulations of New Media


This paper extends a lineage of research that reveals appropriative possibilities by which indigenous and ethnic communities have appropriated media technologies to serve their own cultural, political, and social visions. This paper focuses on networked and database-driven “new” media and information systems, and the possibilities and potentialities these hold within cultural scenarios. A case is presented that has focused on Native communities within the United States. Through this presentation, I present a methodology, process, and analysis of the means by which information systems can enable culturally and community-focused goals.
