National Archives Endorses and Funds Indian Papers Project

May 25, 2016

YIPP editors are proud to announce that the Indian Papers Project received a Publishing Historical Records in Documentary Editions grant from The National Archives‘ National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

The award will fund the editorial preparation and electronic publication of 300 documents in the Massachusetts Archives written by and about Massachusetts Native communities from 1649 to 1870.  The resulting product will include high-quality images, typographical facsimile and text-regularized transcriptions, with robust annotations and biographies.

Assisting in the editorial effort will be Hassanamisco Nipmuc tribal chief Cheryll Holley, librarian Eric Maynard (Mohegan), Cedric Woods (Lumbee) of the Institute for New England Native Studies, and several members of the Wampanoag communities.
