Lunch Lecture: 'Who Owns Our Ancestors’ Voices?'

Since the dawn of sound recording technology, Native American voices have been the subject of significant academic and government research, generating voluminous archives of multimedia materials scattered across institutions around the globe. Growing awareness of these archives by indigenous communities — often as they are being digitized en masse and made available to the public by holding institutions — has led these communities to question institutional claims to ownership and control over the voices of their ancestors.

In this lecture, Professor Trevor Reed will discuss three pathways through which indigenous communities might (re)claim ownership over their ancestors’ voices as well as raise key objectives for the development of intellectual and cultural property laws in this area.
