Native and indigenous women are currently underrepresented in Wikipedia entries. Join us on April 7, 2016, as we write new entries, supplement current ones, and begin to address the imbalance.
This event will take place in the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America (3 James Street) and is cosponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Harvard University Native American Program. Refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.
No previous experience writing Wikipedia entries is necessary. Wikipedia experts and research librarians from Harvard libraries, including the Schlesinger, will be available to help you write and edit your entries. A list of possible subjects, printed reference materials, and online resources will be provided to support the work. New ideas and resources are also welcome.
A behind-the-scenes tour of the Schlesinger Library will be open to those attending the edit-a-thon.

This event at the Radcliffe Institute is part of the Initiative on Native and Indigenous Peoples.
