South Dakota Oral History Center: Overview

A sampling of the wonderful items available at the SDOHC.


The South Dakota Oral History Center collects and preserves voices of the people of the Northern Plains.

Included in the collection are over 6,000 interviews which preserve indigenous memories and experiences from the 1890s to the present. This makes the collection an especially vital and valuable record of the historical, social and cultural legacy of the state.

The collection has been digitized and cataloged and is available to researchers and historians.
