THE INDIAN AND PIONEER INTERVIEWS OF OKLAHOMA
CONCERNING RESIDENTS, INCIDENTS,
OR THE LOCAL OF
THE CHEROKEE NATION
The Indian and Pioneer Interviews of Oklahoma was a project of the Works Progress Administration, which was active during the depression era. While these interviews were made during the 1930's, these older people were talking about their early life in Indian and Oklahoma Territories, their families and neighbors. These are some of the most valuable resources for the true history of Oklahoma.
There are 110 volumes, containing 500+ pages
per volume in the collection. They are contained on 49 rolls of microfilm
(two rolls are indexes), available from the Oklahoma Historical Society.
