ORAL HISTORIES  

The VCHP team has completed many oral histories including working with Tribal elders, Hispanic community members, and farmers. The primary challenge in historic projects is to determine how oral histories can support the project and whether there are informants available to complete them. Oral histories can verify facts, provide additional depth, and result in stories that have not previously been told. The VCHP team is adept at locating interviewees and working with them to gather their stories and support the goals of the project.
