Community-Based Indigenous Digital Storytelling with Elders and Youth
Iseke, Judy; Moore, Sylvia
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v35 n4 p19-38 2011
Indigenous digital storytelling and research are as much about the process of community relationships as they are about the development of digital products and research outcomes. Indigenous researchers, digital storytelling producers, and academics work in different communities with research collaborators who are indigenous community members, including Elders and youth. They have strategized in creating digital storytelling within indigenous communities to create productions beneficial to those communities. In this article, the authors examine four community-based digital storytelling projects. Through these products, the authors consider the importance of indigenous storytelling and explore some of the strategies for creating, as well as designing, indigenous digital stories. The authors draw upon select experiences in the production of the four community-based video projects in order to examine the relationships and purpose of making community-based videos, editing strategies, the transformations of oral stories, and the processes of honoring storylines. Finally, they draw conclusions about the complex process of indigenous community-based filmmaking. (Contains 43 notes.)
