Washington State University will extend the functionality of the free and open source platform Mukurtu, a content management system and community archive platform built with indigenous communities to manage and share digital cultural heritage. Working with partners including the University of HawaII's Department of Linguistics, the Alaska Native Language Archives, the University of Oregon Libraries, the University of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Library Services, and Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, WSU will create a set of national Mukurtu Hubs. Hubs will contribute to the ongoing development and deployment of the platform, as well as provide training and support to tribal archives, libraries, and museums. The project will expand the reach of the software and ensure its sustainability.
