Film: Hyampom Oral History Project

The Hyampom Oral History Project received a Community Stories grant to record the stories of several elders of diverse backgrounds in the Siskiyou County community of Hyampom.

The stories are woven into a one-hour audio-photographic program and have been presented with the goal of increasing communication and connections among residents of the Hyampom community.

Since 2003, California Humanities has supported approximately 400 story projects that have enabled communities to voice, record, and share histories—many previously untold or little known. Through video, photography, murals, zines, documentary theater, audio projects, and more, collected stories have been shared with broad audiences, both live and virtual.
