Wyandotte Nation will create a new website and digital database of primary historical sources associated with the 17th to 20th century Huron/Wyandot experience in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The Nation's cultural center and museum will host the Wyandotte Heritage Digital Archive under the auspices of the Tribal Heritage Department. The project team will assemble digital versions of primary historical resources collected from public and private archives, libraries, museums, historical societies, and collections. The project staff will work with a student intern to perform bibliographic referencing, cataloging, and scanning, prior to uploading the digitized files. The project will support the preservation and accessibility of dispersed cultural collections, foster greater understanding of tribal values and traditions, and promote cross-cultural education, while providing access to all tribal members and others nationwide.
