The SFNPL houses several hundred items that pertain directly to the Sac and Fox way of life and history. There are photos, oral histories, maps, government documents and some genealogical lists among other items within the archival collection. These items and documents may be perused under the supervision of the Historical Researcher. There are also language tapes available for purchase as well as books on Black Hawk, The Sac and Fox Indians and Jim Thorpe. Tapes will be dubbed for Sac and Fox Tribal members free if they bring in their own new blank tapes. The Archive hours are the same as the Library’s but if anyone wants to do extensive research it is strongly recommended that they call in advance to reserve a time and to ensure the Historical Researcher is available to assist them.
