The ICA Indigenous Matters Summit, was held on the final day of the ICA 2019 Designing the Archive Conference. It is a significant contribution by Australia to the United Nations’ International Year of Indigenous Languages (IYIL 2019).
First Nations speakers and delegates from around the world attended the Summit to discuss the current and future role of archives in preserving, promoting and providing community access to Indigenous heritage, culture and language.
The Summit produced a declaration – the Adelaide Declaration – to guide archives globally in actively supporting commitments made under the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The National Archives of Australia (NAA) delivered the Summit in collaboration with the ICA Expert Group on Indigenous Matters and was the principal partner for the Conference, jointly hosted by the Australian Society of Archivists (ASA), the Archives and Records Association of New Zealand (ARANZ), the Pacific Regional Branch International Council on Archives (PARBICA) and the ICA.
