Kanopi Studios: Mukurtu CMS: Designed in partnership with indigenous people to preserve cultural heritage

Planet Drupal - 10 July 2019 - 1:19pm

Kanopi Studios is honored to have contributed to Mukrutu, a project that offers a powerful example of the importance of putting inclusivity, cultural sensitivity, and user needs at the center of design and development so that technology can be used as a force for good. 

What is Mukurtu?

Mukurtu  (MOOK-oo-too) is a free content management system built with Drupal that helps indigenous communities manage, share, and exchange their heritage in culturally relevant and ethically-minded ways.

“Mukurtu” is a Warumungu word for safe keeping place, a name chosen in 2007 when Warumungu community members collaborated with developers and scholars on the first iteration of the platform to produce the Mukurtu Wumpurrarni-kari Archive.

Surviving cultures risk being drowned out or forgotten by modern society due to dwindling numbers, resources, and legal claim to land and heritage. By sharing their voices, indigenous cultures can preserve their history and way of life, educate others, and seek much-needed support. But by doing so, they run the risk of losing control and ownership of the narrative. The Mukurtu project helps to solve that problem. Mukurtu was created to allow indigenous cultures to share their heritage on their own terms, eliminating the potential for exploitation or misrepresentation. 

The power of Mukurtu comes from its complex and layered permission system that goes far beyond the capabilities of traditional content management systems. The system is purpose-built to allow indigenous people to maintain control over how information is shared, who they share it with, and how it can be used.

Mukurtu and Kanopi Studios

As the program expanded, Kanopi Studios joined the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University and CoDA as a development partner. Kanopi led a research-guided approach that included focus groups and surveys with users to inform the project’s technical strategy and development.

Since Mukurtu’s original release, Kanopi has played a lead role in development, adding features based on user requests and ensuring that the system remains easy to use, secure, and scalable. New features include an improved  mobile experience and robust collaboration capabilities with a mobile app coming soon that will allow users to browse and add content from the field, even while offline. 

Kanopi Studios also works directly with clients who want to use Mukurtu, but need to enhance the system to meet unique needs. Custom development examples include a site to help relocate indigenous people in Kivalina, Alaska, another to share the voices of Amiskwaciy people in Edmonton, Canada, and one of our earliest projects with Washington State University.

How Mukurtu can support indigenous communities 

Mukurtu was built to be flexible enough to support diverse communities while remaining easy enough that non-technical users can add and update content and permissions.

Core features include:

    • Traditional knowledge labels allow communities to add labels to content that describe how that content can be accessed, used and circulated, and to whom it needs to be attributed.
    • Cultural protocols allow for finely-grained content access settings that can be customized on an ongoing basis to meet the needs and values of each community, from wide open, to restricted at the individual level. 
    • Community records allow multiple ways to store information about cultural heritage so critical details and diverse perspectives can be maintained. 
    • Data integrity uses file hashes to ensure that files are not tampered with, ensuring that content remains intact over time.
    • Dictionary helps indigenous communities preserve their language, complete with translations, definitions, pronunciations, audio recordings, and other media
    • Collaboration tools allow site members to share events on group calendars and engage in threaded discussions.
    • Unit plans and lessons give educators and students a platform to engage in online and field learning through a Mukurtu site.

Indigenous communities across the globe use Mukurtu to record, preserve, and share their heritage, including the Plateau Peoples’ Web Portal, Passamaquoddy People, Catawba Indian Nation Archives, and many more. 

Impacting our future

While indigenous people benefit from sharing their stories, modern society has much to learn from their cultures as well, from our relationship to the land in a time when climate change threatens us all, to staying connected during this time of individualism and political divide. We’re proud to continue expanding Mukurtu as a platform for telling these important stories and hope they will help us build a stronger future for everyone.

Getting started with Mukurtu

If you have technical support and hosting available, you can download Mukurtu on Github and begin using it for free. For clients who need technical support additional customization of Mukurtu, contact us. We’d love to help.

Drupal In the News: Splash Awards announce new brand to support international open source awards

Planet Drupal - 10 July 2019 - 10:11am

AMSTERDAM July 10 2019 

The Splash Awards celebrate the best Drupal projects around the world by putting brands and agencies using Drupal center stage. Organized in different regions by local Drupal communities, the Splash Awards have become noteworthy to both insiders and outsiders of the Drupal community. With more and more countries organizing their own Splash Awards and the second edition of the International Splash Awards taking place at DrupalCon Amsterdam in October 2019, establishing a solid and open source brand is imperative. That is why the organisation introduced its new brand this week.

In 2014, the first Splash Awards was organized in Amsterdam. While several internet awards were already on the marketing-radar of agencies and brands alike, none had the open source characteristics that our community is accustomed to. Moreover, the need for Drupal to have a hallmark award of its own was evident. This put Drupal further on the map of journalists and media as well as potential Drupal users, highlighting Drupal’s many showcases. Equally important, it puts brands using Drupal center stage and welcomes them (further) into the Drupal community. 

Open Source Awards

True to its open source nature, the Splash Awards were adopted by volunteers from other Drupal communities and organized in various countries. In 2018 the first European Splash Awards was organized during Drupal Europe in Darmstadt, Germany. This opened the Splash Awards to the European Drupal community attending the event. In April 2019 the first International Splash Awards, targetting a global audience, took place in Seattle during the largest Drupal event in the world, DrupalCon. 

Inclusive

In order to serve as a strong and sustainable Drupal showcase platform, the Splash Awards brand needed a consistent and future proof brand. Flexibility, inclusiveness and open source were key in designing the brand, allowing cultures and regions to adopt and start organizing their own Splash Awards. The new brand  also offers flexibility to adapt to regional needs. The open source brand kit will help communities in organizing their own Splash Awards and at the same time it ensures consistency and recognition both inside and outside the Drupal community. 

DrupalCon Amsterdam

The volunteers team involved in the rebranding will also organize the next international Splash Awards during DrupalCon Amsterdam. The awards will take place on the first evening on Monday October 28th 2019. DrupalCon is the biggest Drupal conference in the world, having over 2000 Drupal professionals and users attending. The team works in conjunction with the Drupal Association and Kuoni, the organizations behind DrupalCon. 

With the Splash Awards gaining momentum, it has the unique opportunity to put Drupal in front of new business audiences. Brands  using Drupal proudly stand testimony to others about what a great digital experience platform they have, backed by a professional and passionate community. Drupal developers, agencies and brands can all take pride in winning this prestigious award, built on open source values and celebrating.

Drupal Association blog: Elevating a diverse group of leaders

Planet Drupal - 10 July 2019 - 9:19am

If you want to attract a diverse group of contributors, you have to first show there is a path for a diverse group of people to become leaders -- and providing financial support is a key part of that path.

At the Drupal Association, we believe one of the most positive ways to elevate community members to leadership is through the Drupal Association Board. Board members have an extraordinary opportunity to drive forward the mission and vision of the Drupal Association, and our programs which support the Drupal project, and to ensure that we consider our community in all its diversity.

The board has always had a policy of providing financial support to those members (community elected or otherwise) who cannot afford the cost of travel to board events. At the same time, we do ask that those board members who do have the ability to support themselves to do so, particularly if they have a sponsoring organization in the Drupal ecosystem. However, we've realized that this policy is not well documented. This has meant that some excellent candidates may have previously held back from self-nomination for financial reasons. Today, we change that.

To everyone considering running for the community elected board position please don't let finances be a barrier to your self-nomination for the board. We'd love to have you join us and we're committed to making it achievable for you regardless of your financial situation.

Deep Management #3: Aristotle Ruminates on Game Dev, Part I - by John Bible
