Hidden History

Join a history laboratory and become an investigator exploring the lost stories, forgotten voices, and hidden past of Oregon’s Native American history across the state and on the UO campus. Through original research in the archives, oral interviews in the community, and student-created outputs (e.g. photography, videos, maps) you will contribute new knowledge to the UO Documenting History Project. You will also enjoy the exciting opportunity to study Native American history by participating in two immersive, role-playing games in History 211.
