Symposium 2007: potential contributors

Concerning CCI's upcoming Symposium 2007: Preserving Aboriginal
Heritage: Technical and Traditional Approaches, Sept. 24-28, 2007 in
Ottawa, Canada, I would like to clarify that both national and
international contributions are welcome.

The focus of this Symposium is on presenting information useful for
those who care for Aboriginal objects and collections in Canada,
both in a museum setting and in the Native communities.

Please note:

    *   North American Native material culture spreads across Canada
        and the USA irrespective of borders. American experiences
        are most likely to show strong and useful parallels to
        Canadian experiences.

    *   Native objects originating from Canada are now in museums
        around the world, thus expertise on their preservation is
        found worldwide.

     *  As well, useful parallels can be drawn from anywhere in the
        world of interactions and collaborations between museums and
        the communities from which ethnographic objects originate.

     *  And finally, expertise exists worldwide relevant  to
        specific preservation materials or techniques - this
        information is useful universally.

Info on the Symposium and on the Call for Contributions can be found
