About the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials
"On August 13, 2018, the SAA [Society of American Archivists] Council endorsed Protocols for Native American Archival Materials as an external standard of the organization. These Protocols establish a foundation for archival practice in caring for culturally sensitive records, and center Native American communities in the discussions of preservation and access to these materials. They call on the profession to 'recognize that the conditions under which knowledge can be ethically and legally acquired, archived, preserved, accessed, published, or otherwise used, change through time.'" - Statement by the Society of American Archivists Council, 2018.
