American Indian Digital History Project

Since we originally featured this project in the 11-30-2018 Scout Report, it has continued adding to its archive. Visitors can now explore issues of The American Indian Magazine and Indian Voice, among other resources. Researchers and students of indigenous studies, American history, and political ecology may be particularly interested in the American Indian Digital History Project (AIDHP). This ongoing initiative was "founded to recover and preserve rare Indigenous newspapers, photographs, and archival materials from all across Native North America." At this time of writing, visitors to this project can browse digitized copies of the influential twentieth-century Mohawk newspaper Akwesasne Notes as well as Honga: The Leader, a newsletter from the American Indian Center, and the project plans to expand its holdings. The goals of AIDHP are to partner with Tribal communities and organizations and to "encourage responsible American Indian research methods and the increased use of Native source materials" in order to "raise the bar on academic and public research on or about Indigenous peoples." AIDHP is led by Kent Blansett, Assistant Professor of History, and Jason Heppler, Digital Engagement Librarian, both at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
