Dear Boston-area Wikimedians,
Mark your calendars for an edit-a-thon focusing on indigenous women: Strong Voices Indigenous Women, taking place Thursday, April 7 from 4pm-6pm. The edit-a-thon is sponsored by Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Harvard University Native American Program.
We'd love for you to join us in a celebration of the artistic, political, and professional contributions of indigenous women. No previous experience writing Wikipedia entries is necessary. Wikipedia experts and research librarians from Harvard libraries will be available to help you write and edit your entries. A list of possible subjects, printed reference materials, and online resources will be provided to support the work. New ideas and resources are also welcome. If you cannot join us in person, you can also participate remotely. Refreshments and a behind-the-scenes tour of the Schlesinger Library will be provided for those attending the edit-a-thon.
This edit-a-thon is part of the Initiative on Native and Indigenous Peoples at the Radcliffe Institute, and related events are listed here: http://www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/academic-ventures/research-initiatives/nat….
