I just found out about the International Indigenous Librarians Forum. "In 1997, the Maori Library Workers Network [New Zealand] proposed to the American Indian Library Association (AILA) and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Library Information and Resource Network (ATSILIRN) [Australia] a gathering of indigenous library workers from around the world."

"Forums are held every two years in a different country"--this year's is in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 4-7 June. You can get more information at their website or in the April issue (v. 28, no. 4) of inCite, the journal of the Australian Library and Information Association, page 15 (quotes from that article) . Sounds like a very worthwhile group.
