Since 1972, the NEH has supported research on and the preservation of Native American cultures at the University of Oklahoma. It has provided funding for traveling exhibitions on the Plains Apache and Wichita tribes; the production of American Indian Literature, a 1972 anthology that remained in use for decades; and the conservation of Native American ledger art. With NEH funding, the latest project at the Sam Noble Museum at the University of Oklahoma explores the possibility of establishing a Native American music archive at the university and at tribal centers.
