“UNCP begins oral history project.” Robesonian [Lumberton, NC] August 25, 2014.
A new oral history project of The University of North Carolina at Pembroke’s Native American Resources Center titled “Telling Our Stories” is inviting retired American Indian teachers aged 70 and older to participate, as well as others who are originally from the local community but who taught in schools in adjacent counties or in other American Indian communities. The project is looking for stories that are three to five minutes long to capture as many stories as possible. Depending on how many teachers have been recorded by then, more than one volume of the series may be produced.
There will be two main products of this work. The first will be a video, or videos, edited and produced for public viewing and distribution. The second will be a permanent archive of the entire unedited video collection on tape and in digital format that will become part of the Native American Resource Center’s permanent collection.
