"Anyone looking for materials on Mi'kmaq history will have hundreds of items at their fingertips in the New Year thanks to a new aboriginal library and resource project now underway.Gordon Pictou, senior heritage interpreter and program manager, is working on expanding the resources available in ‘Our Voices - Our Stories' and material should be arriving in the next couple of months.
"We had some items already but we've just ordered about 150 more resources, such as books and videos, and other items such as educational material and handbooks," said Pictou."
"Working to improve library and information services for American Indians.
AILA was founded in 1979 in conjunction with the White House Pre-Conference on Indian Library and Information Services on or near Reservations. At the time, there was increasing awareness that library services for Native Americans were inadequate. Individuals as well as the government began to organize to remedy the situation."
"The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians do not have a reservation or a cultural center, which made the request from tribal members for a special program more compelling. This is an ethnicity that is deeply rooted in Oceanside’s Southern California culture and geography, yet clearly one that had been underrepresented in community programs. The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians, having recently organized a photographic history of its members, and with the urging of the local Arts Commission, was looking for a place to display it. San Luis Rey Band captain Mel Vernon says that the library is, in fact, the one open channel that the tribe has to share local Native American history and experience with the broader community."
