Freeing the 'Archival Captive': A Closer Look at Tribal Archives
By: Brooke M. Black, MLIS student from San Jose State University
ABSTRACT Native Americans must maintain their own archives to take back their history and culture and to control and organize their own tribal government records. This article explores the purposes for and benefits of tribal-owned archives in the United States. It also looks at the way native material has been traditionally collected and used by non-natives and how that affects Native Americans and their own archives. This article then explores the history and development of tribal archives and libraries since the passage of the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act in the 1970s. Due to new funding sources, conferences and related associations, tribal archives are growing in number and this article takes a detailed look at four such archives including the Oglala Lakota College Archives in Kyle, South Dakota; Crow Indian Archives, Little Big Horn College Library at Crow Agency, Montana; The Haskell Cultural Center and Museum in Lawrence, Kansas; and the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
