The Archives & Special Collections is pleased to present a new oral history collection: Strength and Courage: Native American Cancer Survivor Stories. With funding provided by the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the New England division of the American Cancer Society, Northeast Tribal Wellness & Cancer Prevention is working to document Native American experiences with cancer to provide helpful information to current and future generations. Transcripts of taped interviews with Native American cancer survivors are available to be viewed by the general public and researchers. Recordings and mementos are also being collected, though some of these materials may be restricted. This on-going project is currently focusing on members of the Mashantucket Pequot tribe. The long-term goal is to collect donations from Native American cancer survivors throughout the Northeast.
