November is the month when many choose to celebrate Native American Heritage.
We choose to tell the stories of Native American heritage every day. As part of our mission, we have created our TELL ME A STORY studio.
We have begun to interview elders and invite them to share their stories. Stories of their childhood, their challenges, victories and thoughts on life.
We will branch out to record the intergenerational conversations of families as well.
We plan to archive the complete interviews and place short versions on our
YouTube channel (wichitaindianmuseum)
If you wish to be interviewed or know someone who would, please contact April at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 316 350-3341.

We are a partner in:
Stories for All: A Digital Storytelling Project for the Twenty-First Century brings together over forty Kansas-based partner projects dedicated to gathering marginalized and suppressed histories, interconnecting them, and sharing them widely through digital media.
Stories for All, a partnership between the Hall Center for the Humanities and the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Kansas, is supported by a major grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
