Ethnomusicology examines music in its social and cultural contexts to understand what music is and what it means to its practitioners and audiences. As a highly interdisciplinary work, people working in the field may have training in music, cultural anthropology, folklore, performance studies, dance, cultural studies, gender studies, race or ethnic studies, or other fields in the humanities and social sciences. Ethnomusicologists employ a global perspective on music (encompassing all geographic areas and types of music), understanding music as interrelated with its social and cultural contexts, and engage in ethnographic fieldwork (observing and participating in music-making and related activities) and in historical research.
Dianne plays a critical role in the next stage of Indigenous Pathways’ development. With skills in finance, fund development, staff management and community engagement, Dianne will build our team, taking administrative responsibility while maintaining our deep commitment to community.
Dianne is married to Marty and has two adult children. She completed her Master’s Degree with NAIITS in 2022. She is well-integrated into our family and has “taken the walk” at the 2022 NAIITS convocation and symposium.
Join us in welcoming Dianne to the team.
