Tribal PEACE

The Tribal Preserving Education And Cultural Expression (PEACE) project unites the 19 Native Reservations of the San Diego county around their common cultural, educational, political, and social priorities. Privacy issues have been integrated into the ability to access this digital partial. Tribal PEACE integrates different stories and media (video, audio, and images) submitted by tribal members across the reservations and allows tribal members to browse through content according to collective community priorities. This community will serve as an active, growing archive for tribal members to contribute and to reflect upon over time. this project has been realized through the cooperation of Harvard University and the Southern California Tribal Chairmen's Association (SCTCA).
