About this collection

The South Dakota Oral History Center collects and preserves memories and experiences of the people of the Northern Plains from the 1890s to the present.  The collection is an especially vital and valuable record of the historical, social, and cultural legacy of the state.

  • The recordings in the American Indian Research Project pertain to Native Americans of the Northern Plains, with a more specific focus on the tribes of South Dakota. The American Indian Research Project was originally funded by a grant from the Doris Duke Foundation in 1967.

  • The South Dakota Oral History Project is a collection of recordings taken from every county in South Dakota. This collection broadly focuses on South Dakota history, politics, and social life.
  • NEW! The Judicial Voices Project seeks to capture the unique voices and reminiscences of members of South Dakota’s highest court in conjunction with an important milestone in the Court: its 125th birthday.
