From The Herald Journal:
After years of collecting their history, the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation announced that they are in the process of converting and cataloging their historical documents into an online archive hosted by Utah State University.
“The goal has been to create a tribal archive through digital scans and uploads that can be found in one database,” said Clint Pumphreys, a manuscript curator for USU’s Special Collections and Archives staff. “We’ve been working on the oral histories of the 21st century and collecting them so that these files are accessible to anyone online.”
“The changing technology has helped us better document the stories of our elders,” Timbimboo-Madsen said. “But even since we started doing this over 15 years ago, the technology has changed so much that we have to even update the videos we recorded back then.”
