Sac and Fox Archives

The Sac and Fox Historical and Cultural Collection was established in 1989 as a part of the Sac and Fox National Public Library.  The Archives Collection moved to the new Cultural Center in 2013.

The Sac and Fox Nation Archives sustains the history of the Sac and Fox people through the collection and curation of historical manuscripts, personal papers, official reports, institutional records, photographs, and video and audio recordings.  The Archives serves the Sac and Fox Nation through the safekeeping of these historical and cultural materials.  It is an institution dedicated to the Sac and Fox community as a resource of learning and memory and as a preserver and defender of historical records.

The Sac and Fox Nation Archives promotes the culture and history of the Sac and Fox Indians through the preservation of manuscripts, personal papers, official reports, photographs, and video/audio recordings on the historical and contemporary life of the Sac and Fox people.

The Archives acquires, organizes, describes, protects, preserves, and makes accessible this wide variety of materials to help perpetuate the culture and history of the Sac and Fox community and to assist in building self-knowledge, identity, and purpose for the Sac and Fox people.

To accomplish this mission, the library staff works cooperatively with the Sac and Fox National government and its other departments, as well as other libraries and museums, to plan and provide resources and programs for the enrichment of the lives of its patrons.

The facility is located 5½ miles south of Stroud, Oklahoma, at the Capitol of the Sac and Fox Nation.
