Using the Indian Pioneer History Collection

A valuable secondary source for history was produced in Oklahoma as a Works Progress Administration [WPA] project. This wonderful body of work has a full, free, online index and is, at least partially available in a few places - freely - online. This presentation will deal with the data, how to access it in Oklahoma repositories, as well as online, and offer examples of the treasure.
