I have been involved for the past ten years in grant funded projects designed to utilize digital technology to make archival and museum holdings available to Tribal colleges. I work at the Penn Museum, Religious Studies dept, American Philosophical Society (APS), and as project director for three NEH grants with Ojibwe tribal colleges in Minn. I edit two websites, which are supported by Penn's SAS computing: An Ojibwe Digital Archive (http://www.gibagadinamaagoom.info/) and Digital Partnerships with Indian Communities (http://www.sas.upenn.edu/dpic/). I am currently directing a Mellon grant for the APS, which will digitize 3000 hours of Native American audio and work to create digital archives on reservations to help with language preservation and cultural revitalization.
