Little Big Horn College (Crow Agency, MT 59022-7000)
Tim Bernardis (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
Cultivating Ourselves: Digitization and Access to Crow Historical and Cultural Resources

The preservation, transcription, translation, and digitization of audiovisual materials that document Crow history, language, and culture.

Little Big Horn College is proposing a project funded through the NEH to continue to digitize historical and cultural materials related to the Crow Indians. The college holds a great deal of antiquated audiovisual materials and will create digital copies saved on a server, tape drive, and off site. Once digitized, the audio and video will be placed online via the Content Management System, Mukurtu allowing for culturally appropriate use. Along with digitization, the project proposes to create translations and transcripts to aid those who lack fluency in the Crow language. Professionals in the field will produce the transcriptions. Weaving all of this together, virtual displays will utilize audiovisual content, transcripts, and other archival materials held at the college. The project team will receive feedback and assistance from outside professionals from the Sustainable Heritage Project at Washington State University and the Montana Historical Society.
