Contribute an Item
As part of a National Endowment for Humanities Common Heritage Grant, Humboldt State University Library and Native American Studies Department are creating a digital archive and helping community members to digitize items about the 1988 Lyng v Northwest Indian Cemetery Protective Association Supreme Court case.
Do you have papers? Posters? Journals? Photos? Maps? T-shirts? Or any other materials that you would like scanned and made into digital copies? We will be able to work with you to scan your personal collections. You will be able to keep copies of all the digital files and have the opportunity to contribute to a growing collection on Northwest California Tribal activism. You do not need to include your items in the public digital archive to participate.
Contact Carly Marino at carly.marino(at)humboldt.edu or (707) 826-4955 to learn more about about how you can contribute. This is part of a year-long grant project to create dialogue between members of tribal communities to relay the history of indigenous activism in the region while educating the Humboldt State University students in methods of archiving, preserving, and researching community history.
