The Enterprise Rancheria Tribal Library will document, preserve and share elders' stories and create an intergenerational bridge with tribal members of all ages to increase knowledge about and interest in cultural heritage and traditional knowledge through digital media and enhanced library services. The project will focus on digital recording of interviews with elders and other tribal members using storytelling to pass on information about their life experiences and knowledge. The Library will host storytelling events during traditional celebrations such as the Calling Back the Salmon time, monthly elders gathering, monthly youth and culture meetings, quarterly general membership meetings and other community events. The Tribe will collaborate with the Ipakanni Early College Charter school to post audio and video interviews on a web site to be developed by the youth committee with support of this grant and interviews and stories will be preserved on digital media to be checked out at the library and protected in the Tribal Archives.
