Season 2, Episode 6 :
Indigenous Systems of Knowledge
with Dr. Sandy Littletree


In this episode we talk with Dr. Sandy Littletree (Navajo/Eastern Shoshone), Assistant Professor at the Information School at the University of Washington, whose work focuses on Native North American Indigenous Knowledge.

Dr. Littletree shares background about Indigenous systems of knowledge, and practical application as it pertains to Indigenous information science, Indigenous librarianship and the intersections of tribal sovereignty, technology, knowledge, and information in Native North America.  The discussion also shines a light on the importance of cultivating cultural humility as an ongoing practice, and as a foundation to establishing meaningful,  authentic and compassionate connections.
