The Archives is the repository for a number of collections relating to the Church's mission and ministry among indigenous people in the western United States. These materials include evidence of the 19th century evangelism and educational work of the Board of Missions and the National Committee on Indian work, and in more recent times, advocacy for civil rights and cultural restoration through indigenous ministries. The Archives holds oral histories from the Niobrara Convocation, as well as publications, personal papers and photographs. Geographically-focused work among the tribes of Alaska and Hawaii are well represented. Read more in our holdings profile.
