PY-234482-16

Seneca Nation of Indians (Salamanca, NY 14779-1362)
Tami Watt (Project Director: 06/25/2015 to present)

Seneca Historic Photo Collection Project

In a multi-departmental collaboration lead by their Media and Communications Center, the Seneca Nation of Indians will coordinate the digitization and cataloguing of historic photographs, prints, and audio-visual materials at community events throughout western New York State, including the March of the Nation, the Marvin Joe Curry Veterans Pow Wow, and the Cornplanter Descendants Reunion. With the Nations’ knowledgeable elder population dwindling and in recognition of significant visual gaps in the historic narrative, the project aims to preserve history and produce community-driven content while also creating stronger relationships among community members and fostering collaborations. The resulting collection of digitized media will be exhibited at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum to promote community dialogue and interest in stewardship and history.
