Ancestral Voices

Ancestral Voices is an initiative to digitally restore, provide access to and curate the oldest recordings in the Library of Congress. The first presentation in the Ancestral Voices project is the result of a collaborative venture among the American Folklife Center, the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Maine, and the creators of Local Contexts and the Mukurtu content management system.
