The planning group had a number of discussions around ensuring this project was working in good faith with Indigenous writers. At the core of our discussions was the desire to ensure the project respected cultural integrity and to ensure Indigenous perspectives and experiences guided the decision making processes.
With this in mind the following processes were integrated into the event development:
- Emails were sent to writers to inform them of the event, to ask for permission to create or improve their Wikipedia article
- Requests were also made for the kind of information they would like to see represented in their article
- If the writers declined or did not respond to the email, they were respectfully removed from the editing list
