Indigenous Mapping Network meetings at UC-Berkeley convene mapping practitioners, indigenous community members, indigenous rights organizations, researchers, and technology professionals to discuss current issues in indigenous mapping.

Our meetings are intended to create a platform for supporting indigenous mapping collaborations and linking communities with emerging technologies.

Mapping approaches can include thought-maps, performance, materials, as well as GIS, web, and mobile phone technologies.
