Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum (in New Hampshire) World War I Oral History Project

As part of commemorating United State’s involvement in World War I, I (through Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum) will be conducting an oral history project.  This project will consist of interviewing, recording and preserving Native American family narratives about what life was like for their ancestors during World War I.  We will be focusing on both veteran’s stories and stories about the “home front.” This will allow us to capture the flavor of what World War I was like for indigenous families in New England.
