How may data analysis and visualization diagrams that represent historical treaties of the United States Federal government, help to better understand the current conditions of Native American Nations? The Digital Humanities project attempts to provide further insight in our post colonial age.
The Digital Humanities project intends to serve as an intangible reminder of how historical documents continue to determine the fate of many sovereign Native American Nations. The living documents that link Native American Nations with the federal government of the United States continue to raise numerous questions up to this day.
How may data analysis and visualization diagrams in Tableau Public that represent historical treaties of the United States Federal government, help to better understand the current conditions of Native American Nations? Which associations and variations of data may be established? Which dominant key themes and arguments may be addressed? Which visualizations may be used to support conclusions?
In order to address these questions, the project refers to a set of treaties that were compiled by Charles J. Kappler and accessed as electronic resources from Oklahoma State University. The Digital Humanities field also helps reveal underlying social & cultural structures that continue to resonate in our post colonial age.
