Images Of The Past: National Archives Native American Photo Library Online

National Archives

In The Moment … December 16, 2020 Show 962 Hour 1

The Bureau of Indian Affairs has been collecting photos from U.S. reservations for decades, but the pictures haven't been easy for members of the public to find until very recently. There is now an online, searchable database of the pictures thanks to the National Archives and Records Administration.
Guests: Jason Clingerman, the National Archives Director of the Digital Engagement Division in the Office of Innovation, located in College Park, MD; and Cody White, the National Archive subject matter expert on Native American records and an archivist at the National Archives in Denver.
