Doris Duke Native Oral History Revitalization Project


From 1966-1975, Doris Duke provided funding to seven universities to collect 6,500 oral histories from indigenous people in the United States. Recognizing the high value of the materials held within the collections, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation has appointed the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums (ATALM) to serve as the National Coordinator to work with the seven universities and Native communities to improve culturally appropriate access to the Collections, provide the originating communities with copies of all materials collected, ensure proper care of the original materials; and promote and encourage use of the Collections.
