Abstract

Partnerships between museums and Indigenous communities have a complex and fraught history. At the centre of these relationships are often questions around agency and intent, and an increasing expectation of privileging the Indigenous voice. Effective partnerships can provide a lens for the literal and figurative repositioning of the Indigenous voice in the museum space and this lens is refocused to determine the capacity of these spaces to provide a platform for Indigenous representation.
