Indigenous Knowledge Commons


The "education" function of many modern museums has deteriorated into something between baby sitting and the adventure playground. Many serious students of art, nature, and material culture consider such policies to be an abuse rather than a fulfillment of museums' responsibility in the area of education. In the interests of improving access for scholars (of every age) to museum collections, the Indigenous Knowledge Commons has undertaken to provide an educational portal page for each Museum with significant indigenous resources online.
