DHPSNY Dialogue: An Introduction to NYS Field Guide and Indigenous History is New York’s History

The DHPSNY Antiracism Programming in 2024 is structured around both the AASLH Making History at 250 Field Guide and the New York State 250th Field Guide Our guiding question for 2024 is: How do we make our collecting organizations interdisciplinary and representative of the realities of our many New York histories? The February program focuses on an introduction to the field guides and a discussion of Indigenous history as New York history. This program invites participants to grapple with Indigenous history and (historic/contemporary) experiences of Indigenous people and communities as an opportunity for organizations facilitating difficult and necessary conversations about their site’s and collection’s relationship to Indigenous communities in what is now New York State. This program is designed for anyone who works in or volunteers for a library, archive, museum, historical society, or history/culture site in New York State.

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
