Creating and Perpetuating Crow Oral History in the Classroom and Beyond

A three-year project to collect oral histories of the post-World War II generation of  Crow tribe members, to develop humanities course modules based on the interviews, and to train students in oral history methods.

Little Big Horn College (LBHC) proposes a three year Humanities Initiative to enhance the oral histories held in the LBHC Archives which will strengthen Crow perspectives in humanities courses at the college. The LBHC Archives currently holds a large number of pre and early reservation oral histories. The period after World War II lacks the same breadth. As a result, a great deal of material that could assist in a comprehensive Crow centered humanities curriculum is not readily available. Humanities faculty will conduct oral history interviews, integrate the content into the classroom via course modules, and present the oral histories to the Crow community through the Cultural Enrichment Speaker Series. The oral history audio and video files and transcripts will reside at the LBHC Library/Archives for faculty, students and community members to utilize after the completion of the Humanities Initiative as well as being available on the Internet.
