Native American Petitions to Be Digitized

Harvard will be digitizing a collection of Native American petitions. “With support from the Mellon Foundation, the project will digitize more than 4,500 petitions on Native American affairs that were sent to the Massachusetts legislature from 1640 to 1870. The petitions are housed at the Massachusetts Archives, which has collaborated with Harvard in digitizing them since 2012. More than a third of these petitions were sent from Native Americans themselves, including dozens of Native American nations, communities, and individuals.”
