Sample content for Pacific Lighthouse
The Burke Museum will be participating in a pilot project for Pacific Lighthouse, a research project being conducted by the University of Washington, the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California, and the Internet 2 K20 Initiative. As a pilot project partner, the Museum will have an informational page on the Pacific Lighthouse web site giving samples of audio content that will be part of the project. This CARTAH project will be to edit, archive, and encode two oral histories that have recorded onto CD so that they can be streamed onto the web as content samples. The oral histories we have selected are interviews with David Robert Boxley (Tsimshian) and Mique'l Askren (Tsimshian)and are about totem pole raising, potlatches, and Northwest Coast Native artists. They were recorded in conjunction with the Burke Museum's exhibit 'Out of the Silence: The Enduring Power of the Totem Pole' to open on October 3, 2002.
