The Virginia Indian Digital Archive is a project of the Virginia Indian Heritage Program at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. The focus of this program is to gather and record the many historic photographs in the possession of Native families, tribal archives, and museum facilities, so that the images could be preserved and digitally accessed. In addition to photographs, the archive includes maps, letters, treaties and other texts, as well as audio interviews and video programs collected from sources throughout the U.S. and beyond.
