Meskwaki Historic Preservation Department Digitization Project

The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa will initiate digitization of its Historical Preservation Museum collection of more than 5,000 fragile, historic images and films of Meskwaki peoples and traditions. This will help the Tribe further its strategic priority of preserving tribal language and culture; one of the top five overarching Sac and Fox community goals. The activities financed under this grant will help the Tribe achieve current project objectives including: 1) Implementing the Atowewenwi community language preservation plan. 2) Collecting and making available resources to support preservation activities, including digital resources. 3) Developing a plan for Meskwaki cultural and language immersion. 4) Developing a manual of tribal customs, procedures, and practices.
