In this webinar, the Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) will discuss their initiative to identify and collect nationally dispersed Native American boarding school records as well as implement digital access to these vital records. As part of a broader effort to provide access to and information about those impacted by Native American boarding schools, the NABS’s digital archive brings together digital surrogates of historical documents held by individuals and institutions across the United States, including libraries, state archives, federal archives such as the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), universities, colleges, schools, and other resources. As the project grows, the team at the NABS looks to archivists for guidance, assistance, and support.
