Mission Statement

The Center for Digital Archaeology is a California 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2011, helping communities, archaeologists and cultural resource managers capture, preserve, and share cultural heritage digitally.

Description

CoDA works at a unique junction between anthropology, archaeology, and digital technology to help archaeologists and anthropologists learn and adopt tools and solutions to save cultural heritage digitally. We do this through two main programs: Digital Archaeology and Digital Traditional Knowledge. In a collaborative environment and by creating long-lasting trust and learning experiences, we create community digital archives and digital online exhibits (on our platform mukurtu.net), cultural data management plans, and trainings to enhance digital skills.

For example, we helped the Alutiiq Museum in Alaska to built an online Alutiiq language archive which provides access to the endangered Alutiiq Museum's language recordings to the public and community members (https://codifi.org/project/the-alutiiq-museum-naken-natmen-project/). One of the most visually compelling online community archives we have contributed to is the Mira Canning Stock Route, an online showcase that allows differential access to aboriginal art and performances (http://www.canningstockrouteproject.com). The Sípnuuk Digital Library is a newborn online archive for collecting Karuk's traditional knowledge around medicine and food, and archaeological locations for spiritually significant places (https://sipnuuk.mukurtu.net/).
