  • Indigenous People’s Justice Edit-a-thon @ Interference Archive

    In honor of Indigenous People’s Day and Anti-Thanksgiving, the Interference Archive, with Wikimedia NYC, is holding a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on the theme of Indigenous peoples’ movement histories. Across settler-colonial geographies, Indigenous peoples’ histories have largely been misrepresented. This misrepresentation has enabled and concealed acts of violence against Indigenous peoples in many forms – from environmental contamination to forced relocation. In an effort to learn from and support the myriad movements that have arisen in response to this violence, we will glean relevant information from the collection at Interference Archive to share through Wikipedia. Our objective is to make information and documentation related to Indigenous peoples’ movement histories more accessible for current and future movement makers, educators, and learners. No experience editing Wikipedia is required but please bring a laptop! Experienced Wikipedians will be around to help out, and we’ll be starting the edit-a-thon at 2pm with a brief tutorial to cover the basics. Snacks will be provided.
