About the Indian Pioneer Histories

The Indian Pioneer Histories are oral histories conducted in the 1930s. The interviews offer firsthand accounts from individuals who experienced pioneer life in present-day Oklahoma. Interviews vary in length but may include information about individuals including births and deaths, residence, burial location, and profession. The interviews were conducted during the Great Depression as part of Works Progress Administration project S-149, sponsored by The University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Historical Society.
