American Indian Oral History Collection

Please close this window to return to the results screen.

This collection comes from the University of New Mexico and is part of a larger collection.

These interviews document oral traditions and recollections of Native Americans. Commonly called the Doris Duke Project, they were recorded, 1967-1972, by graduate students from the University of New Mexico. The bulk of the collection consists of interviews with Navajos and New Mexico Pueblos talking about personal and family histories. It includes information on social culture, education, ceremonies, legends, language, government, and history. Historical subjects reported from a Native American perspective include the Pueblo Revolt, brief tribal histories, and traditional hunting practices and public works programs. Some interviews also contain commentaries on the 1968 Indian Civil Rights Act, the Red Power movement and the occupation of Alcatraz (Source: UNM Center for Southwest Research).
