From the document: The original design of this project was as an oral history. Indeed, in my proposal I stated that “Native Americans who retain the stories, recollections, and remembered traditions of their individual tribes and cultures are rapidly disappearing.” And while I thought I might discover existing memories or stories about the region, it was clear from the beginning that recollections specific to locales within the Park and surrounding area did not exist. Indigenous peoples were separated from these homelands by the 1870s and the last recorded date of hunting and/or camping in and around the Park area was 1875.
