How to contribute:

In this early phase, the database is not yet public. We are working with our tribal partners and a team of researchers to identify, enter, and interpret relevant historical and oral historical materials. We are looking to partner with individuals and institutions who are willing to send materials they have or join our research team to input materials directly. You can add to this project in one of several ways:

a) by sending us any and all listings or spreadsheets of indigenous slaves that you have compiled in your own research;

b) by receiving training on how to use the database entry form and entering information you might have;

c) by joining the research team as an intern to receive training and guidance on how to research and enter information.
