Objectives
-- to generate a multi-media exhibition about the Orochen in the twentieth century based on artifacts and the assessment of what is important by Orochen contributors -- to produce a catalogue about various topics of Orochen history, society, and culture that will contextualize the exhibition content -- to engage the Orochen populations providing the items in collaborative ethnography (Lassiter, 2005) through the process of collecting evidence to be featured in the exhibition -- to establish working relationships with the Orochen communities and to build partnerships with them for experiential learning opportunities that HKU undergraduates will pursue in the future
