Navajo Oral History Project in Smithsonian Libraries Article

It's been a few years since the Navajo Oral History Project ended. It stays on my mind. I just found a link to an official Smithsonian Libraries article about the NOHP which I directed for the Winona State University Mass Communication Department with Dr. Miranda Haskie, a colleague from Diné College of the Navajo Nation:

During the NOHP's six years of field work, more than 100 students participated and produced 27 films focused on the lives of 27 Navajo elders, nine of which were World War II Navajo Code Talkers.

It's nice to see the student's work get more positive recognition. It's not often that undergraduate student work is archived at the Smithsonian!
