Indigenous Digital Archive Fellows

Thank you for your interest! Applications for our pilot project of IDA Fellows closed November 2017.  The first round of Fellows began in March 2018. Join them in looking at the documents online! We are currently seeking funding for the next round of IDA Fellows.

Research topics: Fellows may apply to work on a project related to their family history; topics such boarding school and jurisdiction histories, as the role of the Superintendent of Indian Affairs in Native New Mexico life from 1849-1880, conditions at different government boarding schools, child labor, official racism, arts in the early schools, or what comprised education over time; or a topic of interest to their tribe or to their own research that the documents could help address. We may add to this list of topics.

Webinar: A webinar for potential applicants and others who are interested in making history with the Indigenous Digital Archive was held Thursday October 26, 2017, from noon to 1pm Mountain. For a recording of the webinar click here.
