Voices Of The Wakarusa Wetlands
The Voices of the Wakarusa Wetlands project started in the summer of 2012. The idea came upon listening to an open lecture about the Wakarusa Wetlands (also known as the Haskell-Baker Wetlands) in the Haskell Indian University campus, organized by a student group named Wetlands Preservation Organization (WPO).
Our goal was to visually translate this extremely rich ecosystem, history and importance of the the Wakarusa Wetlands. As well as help make the connection between: people, plants, and animals particularly to the Wakarusa Wetlands.
Project created by multimedia history collectors: Connie Fitzpatrick and Robbie Wood.
