Re-Membering the Boise Valley People: Rethinking Sovereignty in Contemporary Cultural Planning

Research and writing of an article on reconciliation efforts by Boise city officials and Native American groups in order to better understand the meaning and role of sovereignty in such contexts.

Over the past few years, cultural planners from the City of Boise, Idaho and local Native American tribes have developed an innovative working relationship. Built on the principle of interdependent sovereignty, these partners have a plan to remake Boise’s cultural infrastructure. They are commissioning public artwork by Native artists and creating signs to reintroduce traditional place names into Boise’s urban spaces. This collaboration holds the potential for both innovative successes and unexpected challenges. However, the unique attitude toward interdependence guiding this collaboration may allow it to serve as a model for other tribal/settler state partners working toward reconciliation. At the invitation of both parties, I will document this collaboration, contributing a new perspective to our understanding of cultural sovereignty by demonstrating the interdependent way in which sovereignty can be enacted through collaborative cultural partnerships.

Community Archiving of Native American Music: Best Practices for Institutional Facilitation

A planning project to develop, in consultation with Native American communities, protocols for best practices for preserving and digitizing audio and audiovisual recordings of Native American music held in various community archives and at the Sam Noble Museum at the University of Oklahoma.

This project will consult with Native communities to ascertain the desirability and logistics of a large-scale digitization and preservation program for Native American music recordings in Oklahoma. The immediate goal of the project is to develop a series of protocols for best practices in ethically facilitating the preservation and digitization of music recordings primarily held by Native communities and their members. We also propose to expand and enhance policies regarding audio and audiovisual recordings in the museum's Native American Languages Collection. The duration of the project is two years. The first year we will focus on community outreach and engagement as well as our campus-based and external advisors. The second year we will expand and follow up on our community meetings, develop protocols, and solicit feedback from our advisors as well as from community leaders and members. The final product will be a set of recommendations for program implementation.

Westward Expansion and the Constitution in the Early American Republic

A two-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university teachers on the U.S. Constitution and American westward expansion in the early Republic.

The Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage (IACH), an interdisciplinary center for the study of American constitutionalism at the University of Oklahoma, in conjunction with the Department of History proposes to host a two-week Summer Institute for College and University Teachers in June 2016. We offered a successful NEH Institute on this topic in the summer of 2014 and plan to follow the same basic program in 2016 with some minor adjustments. This Institute will explore the social, cultural, and political dimensions of American westward expansion through the lens of the U.S. Constitution and the struggles over its interpretation between the American Revolution and the conclusion of the Mexican-American War in 1848. In this Summer Institute, we hope to bring current and future college faculty together to study the history of the American West, race, Indian removal, and the early history of the federal Constitution and the republic it created.

Westward Expansion and the Constitution in the Early American Republic

A two-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university teachers to explore the topic of American westward expansion in the Early Republic through the lens of the U.S. Constitution.

Expansion and the Constitution in the Early Republic is a proposed two-week Summer Institute for College and University Teachers, to be held at the University of Oklahoma in June 2014. We anticipate applications from teachers at four-year and community colleges as well as graduate students. The proposed Institute will bring current and future college faculty into conversation with some of the leading academic researchers of the early republic on the history of the American West, race, and Indian removal. The participants will explore the social, cultural, and political dimensions of American westward expansion through the lens of the U.S. Constitution and the struggles over its interpretation between the American Revolution and the conclusion of the Mexican-American War in 1848.

The American Indian and Ethnohistory

A five-week seminar for fifteen college and university faculty to explore American Indian ethnohistory, a study of the relationship between Indians and Europeans.

This seminar will explore American Indian Ethnohistory, a study of the relationship between Indians and Europeans, using as a foundation in understanding of the evolving nature of tribalism. Initial discussion will focus on cultural anthropology and its early role in developing the discipline, and then turn quickly to the growing contributions made by historians in the field. Some of the earliest ethnohistory looked broadly at the impact of European invasion on Indian tribes, showing in particular the demographic collapse that came with that invasion. This led to what is often called "victim" history. But by the 1980s, many ethnohistorians were probing deeply into the way Indians adapted to the European advance, especially how they changed their political, social, economic, and religious institutions to meet the needs of a changing world. It is this new history, of Indians as actors, which we will explore in the seminar in considerable detail.

Conservation of Native American Ledger Art

The Oklahoma Museum of Natural History holds three ledger art books related to the Kiowa tribe. Ledger art provides rich detail on the cultural practices of the Native American tribes found on the Southern Plains and captures detailed images of wars, battles, hunts, ceremonies, rituals, and other aspects of tribal life. This art can be a complex form of storytelling. A professional paper conservator will undertake preservation efforts to conserve these ledger books and to allow safe handling of the objects.
