Vision of the International Indigenous Librarians’ Forum

We, as unified Indigenous peoples who work with libraries and information, will ensure the appropriate care, development and management of the Indigenous knowledge of generations past, present and future. Created at the 1999 Forum in Aotearoa, New Zealand



The International Indigenous Librarians' Forum is held every two years for the purpose of providing a "focused exploration of the significant issues facing libraries and institutions that care for Indigenous and cultural information" (International Indigenous Librarians' Forum Proceedings, Te Rōpū Whakahau, 2001). It allows a meeting place for Indigenous librarians and information management workers to discuss, debate and describe their experience of working within the industry and their visions, hopes and expectations for the future.
