"Making History" Project

Enrolled citizens of tribes in Oklahoma who are veterans or servicemembers (and/or their families) may bring documentation of military service, awards, and photographs to be professionally scanned by archivists. Veterans and servicemembers, if present, may also sit for a complimentary portrait. Participants will leave with their original items and a flash drive with professionally digitized materials and will later receive a portrait photograph, if applicable. Those who consent will have their digitized materials added to the museum’s archive and presented in-gallery through a visitor interactive.

The public is welcome to witness this event! Recognizing the importance of museums “making history” in view of the public, these activities will take place in a public space at FAM.
