Preserving Native American History- National Endowment for the Humanities

"This report highlights five NEH-funded projects designed to support Native Americans and their communities. The projects featured in this report demonstrate the diversity of the agency’s work and the many strategies for supporting Native Americans throughout the country. These projects preserve Native American history and serve tribal communities by engaging them through the humanities. These are just a few examples of how NEH funding fuels innovation, increases communication, and strengthens communities. Some initiatives, like the Klallam Dictionary and Electronic Text Archive, preserve ancient languages by creating digital audio and video collections. Other programs, like the Bdote Memory Map, use interactive websites to make Native American history more accessible to educators and the public."
