Genoa Indian School Digital Reconciliation Project

The digitization, cataloging, and transcription of approximately 410 pages of historical records, 10,000 pages of government documents, 200 photographs, and 50 oral histories documenting the history of Indian boarding schools and the experience of Native Americans who attended the Genoa Indian Boarding School in Genoa, Nebraska.

The Genoa Indian School Digital Reconciliation Project seeks a three-year, $350,000 Humanities Collections & Reference Resources Implementation Grant to digitize, contextualize, and make available materials related to the Genoa U.S. Industrial Indian School. The project is a collaboration between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Genoa U.S. Indian School Foundation, working with a Community Advisors Council of tribal representatives. An HCRR grant from the NEH would enable the Project to complete the second phase of the project: the preservation and transcription of approximately 50 hours of oral histories of Genoa school attendees and the digitization and description of approximately 410 pages of records for Cheyenne and Arapaho children located at the Oklahoma State Historical Society, about 6,300 pages of U.S. government documents located in the National Archives in Washington, D.C., and 200 photographic images at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.
