Subscribers to H-net might like to know that over the past few months the Carleton Centre for Public History (http://www3.carleton.ca/ccph/) based at Carleton University in Ottawa has been creating the ongoing video project: "Stories from the Douglas Cardinal Collection: The Archival Project". Through the collaboration of the Centre’s co-director David Dean and Patti Harper, head of the University Library’s Archives and Research Collections, the videos were researched, filmed and produced by one of the Centre’s graduate researchers, Elizabeth Paradis. You can read more about the project on our facebook page:

both of which provide access to the videos which are posted on the Douglas Cardinal youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/Cardinalproject?featur)
There are currently five videos, including an introduction to the collection and its acquisition, and now three interviews with Douglas Cardinal:
Episode 1 "Douglas Talks About… A Shared Vision for Aboriginal Education in Alberta"
Episode 2 "Douglas Talks About… Saskatchewan Indian Federated College (now First Nations University of Canada)"
Episode 3 "Douglas Talks About... Form and Function: St. Mary's Church, Red Deer"
Work continues on the project and you can follow us via the usual social media sites.
Best, David Dean
