New Tribal Papers Added to Historic Oregon Newspapers Online
Thanks to collaborations with the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and funding from UO Libraries donors, three new titles documenting Native American news, views, and history are now available for searching and browsing on Historic Oregon Newspapers online:
- Weekly Chemawa American and The Chemawa American, published by students of the Chemawa Indian Boarding School just north of Salem, issues dating from 1901-1915.
- Smoke Signals, the current newspaper of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, issues dating from 1978-2013.
These new titles join the Klamath Tribune (1956-1961)--digitized in partnership with the Klamath Tribes and available online since May 2014--as important representatives of Tribal publications and perspectives among the many, diverse titles included in Historic Oregon Newspapers online. The site provides free access to complete content of newspapers that have been digitized as part of the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP), a program of the University of Oregon Libraries with assistance from major grants and external funding.
