Free Webinar! Digital Access to Dispersed Records: A Look at Native American Boarding School Records (October 14)

The National Native American Boarding School (NABS) Healing Coalition will discuss their initiative to identify and collect nationally dispersed Native American boarding school records and to implement digital access to these vital records. As part of a broader effort to provide access to and information about those affected by Native American boarding schools, the NABS digital archive brings together digital surrogates of historical documents held by individuals and institutions across the United States, including libraries, state archives, federal archives such as the National Archives and Records Administration, universities, colleges, schools, and other resources. As the project grows, the NABS team looks to archivists for guidance, assistance, and support.  

This webinar will be presented by Christine Diindiisi McCleave, Executive Director of the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition and Dr. Rose Miron, Director of the D’Arcy McNickle Center for American Indian and Indigenous Studies at the Newberry Library in Chicago. The Human Rights Archives Section and the Native American Archives Section are proud to co-host this event.
