The Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Alabama is creatively digitizing and preserving our elders' voices from 3,500 audiocassette recorded interviews in the 1970s and 1980s, and giving out the recordings to the community. This session describes the successful partnership between the Tribe and the University of Florida, and the creative way our Program drives our future by connecting us to our past, a model for other archivists/ institutions/ communities to follow.
