What is a Community?

Last Updated: Sep 02, 2016 07:39PM PDT
Communities are one of the three core elements of every Mukurtu site. The other two core elements are Cultural Protocols and Categories.

Communities can be large or small, public or private, and your Mukurtu site can have as many communities as needed.

Each community represents a group of content contributors and site users and contains digital heritage items relevant to those community members. User access to individual digital heritage items within a community is managed through the use of cultural protocols that are created within the community.

Some examples of communities could be specific families or clans, tribal government departments, or a space for youth-appropriate content.
