Native American Oral History Resources: Home
The Oklahoma Oral History Research Program works to document and make accessible the history of Oklahoma and OSU through oral history interviews.
By recording first-person perspectives of lived events, oral history is a research methodology utilized to document a complex and inclusive archive of experiences through an intentional recorded interview process which is made available for future generations.
The resources listed in this guide highlight the various projects and interviews in our archive that focus on Native American history in Oklahoma, with topics ranging from boarding schools to Native Artists in Oklahoma.
