Tribal History Partnerships and the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley Ethnohistory Collection at Indiana University
Relationships initiated through NAGPRA-related consultation can foster collaborations to provide access to historic resources to federally recognized tribes. The Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Ethnohistory Collection at the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology at IU was gathered by Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin to provide evidence for 20th century Indian Claims Commission lawsuits. Tribal scholars are collaborating with IU staff to plan and implement a digitization program to make archives available online to tribal scholars. In the process an instrumental resource for researching cultural affiliation is being revitalized and preserved, and tribal scholars acquire sources that meet tribal cultural heritage objectives.
