Tell Me A Story Studio

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 ascott@wichita.gov or 316 350-3341.

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.
