Kaw Nation will plan and implement digitization activities to provide for the preservation of tribal artifacts, photographs, and other items of historical significance. The project team will purchase supplies and equipment to support the work, including scanners, a printer, and preservation/storage materials. The project will include the development of a kiosk-based exhibition in the Kanza Museum to serve as a digital learning resource for visitors. The museum intends to work toward developing resources that foster digital literacies for tribal members wishing to access tribal history and learn more about their Native culture and heritage. The project will strengthen the tribe's ability to reach all of its members, regardless of location, giving both members and the community the opportunity to access digital media content displayed through the tribe's website.
