Winter Gathering January 11, 2014 Lola Hampton Purvis, MLIS, CLIS ANA Research Manager Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma, Cultural Preservation Department The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma is losing

its historical knowledge, which has led to a loss of cultural identity among our tribal community. A primary issue is that we have a shortage of historical documents, making it difficult to share that rich and vibrant knowledge with our people. A Search for Eastern Shawnee History Our ancestors stories of resilience, resistance,

and survival remain archived in various places across the United States. Part of my job as ANA Research Manager is to travel to these places to recover these stories. . OBJECTIVES:

The listener will identify the purpose of the ANA grant. The learner will meet team members and partners. The listener will learn tidbits of Eastern Shawnee history. The listener will be introduced to some technology terms that impact the outcomes of the activities of the grant. The listener will be able to identify what they want to learn as a result

from the grant activities. Chief Glenna Wallace, Executive Director Audrey Gardner, Project Director Robin Dushane, Department Director Michael Lowery, Grant Coordinator Lola Hampton Purvis, ANA Research Manager Karlee Gibson, Grant Administrative Assistant

Silverhorn Designs If we fail in passing our history to our people, then we fail our ancestors and lose their stories rich in strife, struggle and triumph. Eastern Shawnee people survived that resilience in the face of adversity is a central characteristic of being Shawnee.

What will I be doing? Recovering oral histories, language recordings, and written sources relating to our people that will enable us to reconnect our people to their heritage. Flag of Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma Significance of the Eastern Shawnee Tribal Seal

75 members in the last decade of the 19th century. Sometime during the 1890s there were no longer enough people to fill the positions it took to carry on ceremonials.

Government to Government relations began long ago when the federal government signed treaties with Indian tribes. Treaties are the founding documents that incorporate sovereignty with most tribes today.

Treaties recognized tribes as independent groups of people. Longhouse Village Sharing is a part of Indian life, and it gives Security to a life that has seldom been easy. Leif Selstad
