THANK-YOU to SFSU and KQED for posting this incredibly valuable footage. I am Ojibwe and a grad student at the University of Michigan. This archive is an incredible resource for me!!

You really aren't looking for a lot of money to digitize this footage. Have you tried raising money with California's tribes?? I know the tribes in Michigan have what they call 5% money--a portion of casino profits that are reinvested back into local community projects. Miigwetch and keep loading this online as quickly as you can! I'll be telling my students and department (American Culture) about this resource.Veronica PasfieldDoctoral StudentProgram in American CultureUniversity of Michigan, Ann
