Videos from the Great Basin Indian Archives

These videos are a collection of oral histories recorded by the Great Basin Indian Archives (GBIA) housed at the Great Basin College (GBC) Virtual Humanities Center in Elko, Nevada. This ongoing project, funded by Barrick, documents the life, heritage, and culture of native peoples in the Great Basin area.

In order to make this valuable resource available to the public, GBIA has partnered with the Shoshoni Language Project at the University of Utah to host this video streaming site.

Below you will find links and short descriptions to the videos.  Links appear in red.  When they become available, transcripts will also be posted here.
