Gathering Family History-Cultural Project Survey

The Iowa Tribe Archive Department is collecting information by taking an informal survey to evaluate Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma members opinion of the Gathering Family History Project.  The project is a result an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Grant written in 2015 and has been developing since then culminating in an online portal of photographs and documents available for public viewing beginning in April 2018.  Through the duration of the project information has been circulated through flyers in the tribal complex and through the tribal newsletter.  Our goal is to improve the process of developing proposals and circulating information by including community input from Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma members in directing the future efforts of cultural projects you would like to see.
