The Native American nonprofit, Wisdom of the Elderberry Farm, is preparing for upcoming science and cultural classes for Native Americans entering agricultural and horticultural career pathways. We have collected a number of recordings that need to be uploaded and archived in order for us to develop our culturally-tailored multimedia curriculum.
We are seeking a virtual volunteer to move these recordings onto our hard drive; submit audio files of the recordings to our transcription service so they can be automatically transcribed; and then create and forward transcription files to the Elderberry Farm staff.
This is rewarding work because of the rich content of the recordings. If you are interested in Native American culture, arts and Traditional Ecological Knowledge, you will find this work to be a fulfilling experience. Please contact us if you have questions and we'll be happy to respond.
