Digitally archiving Hula-related objects Ishida, Mayu


To investigate concrete challenges of digitally archiving and preserving Indigenous Knowledge, attempted to archive digital materials related to a Hula work “Lei Nani”, which I previously performed with two other students at a public event. This event was part of a Graduate course LLED 565D Living Our Indigenous Languages through Performative Arts In this digital archiving exercise, I explored which pieces of content and contextual Information should be considered and curated for long-term preservation and Perpetuation of Indigenous knowledge such as the Hawaiian performative art of Hula. A reflective journal was kept throughout to document challenges encountered in the exercise, And the challenges were analyzed to help refine a workflow for digital preservation and Perpetuation of Indigenous knowledge.
