he National Archives announced the recipients and research topics for the 2013 Regional Fellowship Program. The winners will research at specific National Archives locations. The topics include several that intrigue me due to the connection to American Indian research which is one of my specialties.
- The Northern Cheyenne Homesteaders of Southeast Montana’s Tongue River and Otter Creek Valleys
- Dislocated Removals, Institutions, and Community Lives in America History. This is about the Hiawatha Indian Asylum in Canton, South Dakota. I have worked in the records of this and of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC where Canton residents were sent when that institution closed.
- Moving Towards the Mainstream: Native America, 1890-1940
The researchers will complete a research project for publication. They will also write a report about the research experience that the archives will publish.
