Voices of Oklahoma

Skip Side Navigation

Voices of Oklahoma is a summer internship for rising high school juniors and seniors who are members of communities traditionally excluded from archaeology.  This for-credit program introduces students to the discipline of archaeology as a tool that can produce knowledge that complements other ways that communities understand their heritage (e.g., historic documents and oral traditions).  Each summer’s curriculum focuses on a theme chosen with hopes it will resonate with the students.  In summer 2023, that theme will be Indigenous boarding schools. 

The goal of the internship is to create networks to higher education for participants and teach them what archaeology is and that it offers viable career paths that are consistent with achieving social justice for traditionally marginalized communities.
