Native American Oral History Interviews

A guide to the Native American History Project collection housed within the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and supported through the UF Libraries’ Digital Collections, with funding from the Doris Duke Chartable Foundation.

Collection Overview & Scope

A collection of more than 1,000 oral history interviews digitized from over 2,000 audio tapes recorded between 1970-2000. Originally funded by Doris Duke, the recordings consist of oral history interviews with members of tribal communities east of the Mississippi and includes voices of the Catawba, Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Lumbee, and Seminole peoples. Recent funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation allowed for the revitalization of this collection. The University of Florida has partnered with the originating Tribes and Nations and the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums to create the Archive of Native American Oral History - a digital collection representing over 6,000 oral histories from over 160 Indigenous communities.

Collection Inventory

Coming soon! 

As we work on revitalizing the collections and with our Community Partners on culturally appropriate access to materials, some of the interviews in the collection have been removed from our digital collections on the UFDC. We thank you for your patience while these materials are attended to and we look forward to making them available again soon.
