Re-Claiming Pacific History - Making Pacific Cultural Heritage Visible and Accessible

Digitalpasifik.org is a website that aims to make visible and accessible the digitized cultural heritage of the people in and of the Pacific. This is part of a project called the Pacific Virtual Museum funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade in Australia, and implemented by the National Library of New Zealand in collaboration with the National Library of Australia. The project worked in a way that honors Pacific values relationships, realities, and timescales. This presentation shares how the website was developed, and how Pacific people have a tool by which they can access their Pacific cultural heritage.

The second part of the presentation focuses on the Cook Islands community in New Zealand and how they are reconnecting with their cultural heritage via different methods and platforms. The Cook Islands is an island country located in the South Pacific Ocean, with many of its people now living abroad in New Zealand and Australia. This presentation will also discuss the use of traditional knowledge labels the Cook Islands community is using to ensure governance and protocols for using and sharing their traditional knowledge and customs.
