My dad has been collecting the oral stories of Native American peoples in the Pacific Northwest for a really long time. Like, a REALLY long time. Decades. These are stories passed down from one generation the next verbally. They are wonderful stories. There is the danger they will be lost. He saves them and transcribes them and does some translating and expanding.
I’ve been trying to convince him to put them all in one place online on a website for a really long time.
And, we’re doing it. Yay!
It was kind of amazing his name was actually available for an url. That almost never happens. I was so on task when I discovered that. “You want this URL.” “Now.”
I built the site. He is pulling up the stories he has saved. We are slowly beginning to load the stories.
Go see. Yay!
