ALA-accredited librarians are accredited to work with and in Western Knowledge Systems specific to Canada and/or the United States. That begs a number of questions including who is entitled to work with/in Traditional Knowledge Systems, how do we identify them, and how do they get incorporated respectfully, into libraries? This poster posits a structure to start some discussion and conversations around these issues, and solicit feedback to hopefully allow us to start working towards an informed framework for incorporating Indigenous labour into various libraries.
