The Lushootseed Archive Project was formally begun at the Center for Advanced Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities in June 1996. Dr. William R. Seaburg, Department of Anthropology and American Indian Studies Center of the University of Washington, is the Principal Investigator and was joined by Elder Vi Taqwsheblu Hilbert, Director of Lushootseed Research, and Professor Richard Karpen, Director of the Center for Advanced Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities, in instituting the Digital Archive Project.
The purpose of the Lushootseed Archive Project at Center for Advanced Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities -- in keeping with the University's research mission, while respecting the culture and traditions of Lushootseed -- is to preserve, catalogue and disseminate in digital format materials held by Lushootseed Research.
To date, the Archive Project at the Center for Advance Research Technology in the Arts and Humanities holds three CD's of Lushootseed songs, performed by Martin Sampson and Charley and Louise Anderson, one CD of Lushootseed stories, told by Aunt Susie Sampson Peter, and a digital video lecture given Isadore Petius Tom. All of these materials are in the Lushootseed language.
