Original Work

“This Is My Land” (Khwi’ Khwe Hntmikhw’lumkhw) by Gary B. Palmer, Ph. D, is a workbook published in 1987. Dr. Palmer is a professor from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in the Department of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies.

Elder Grammarians Lawrence Nicodemus and Lavinia Felsman

Funded by a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council

Scope of the project

Identify geographic features with Coeur d’Alene names (over 120)

Preserve Coeur d’Alene Language and Stories

Follow up work done by Graduate student Mathew Jensen (u of Idaho)

Slide4 l.jpg


The Names-Places Project is a collaborative undertaking by the

Coeur d'Alene Tribal Elders, the Language Center and the GIS

Geographic Systems) program.

The purpose of this project is to preserve tribal culture by visiting geographic sites and recording video, audio, and still photos of Elders describing the site in both English and Coeur d'Alene languages.

GIS allows files to be linked to sites on maps that can be accessed with a "mouse click." Digital video, audio, and still photos of the site are attached to the map. The Tribe has recognized the potential of emerging technologies for archiving, preserving, and presenting cultural information.

Scope of the Names-Places project

Enhancement and expansion of Dr. Palmer’s project using

computer technologies.

GIS mapping

Digital images

Audio recording


Where I come in

Slide6 l.jpg

To date, we have visited most of the 120 sites listed in

The original work for the Names-Places project.

We have about 85 finished videos for the project along

With audio/video footage from other various tribal events.

Included in the tribal

Website for use by

Tribal departments

Maybe get a chance

to look-at website

Tip for cataloguing and documenting

It is very important to keep clear concise records

of the site visits to help with archiving of the data, as well

as assisting the people that are editing the videos.

Keep in mind that the people that edit the videos probably

were not present during the site visit, so the documentation

is all they have to go off of.

Archiving contents:

Site visit forms

Burned CD of videos

Burned CD of Audio

Backed up VCR Tape

Misc info (Adobe premiere

Projects, drgs, etc.)

Slide8 l.jpg

Documentation, Archiving and Backups

Trip record (paper)

Field notes

Naming conventions

By date, site #, and document (photo)

GPS data

By date, site #, and document (photo)

VHS or digital to VHS copies

Audio cassette to digital CD

Digital photo to CD


Originals (cool, dry place such as a safe)

Backups (stored off site)

Slide9 l.jpg

It can be

a simple form

like this.

Site Name:Date:

Crew Names:

Misc stuff:

GPS, description,

Location, Photo names,

Filenames, videos, etc.

If you have multiple

sites on one tape, please

mark down start/end times

on documentation

Title Slides would really be helpful like have a

Dry erase board and write Site name, video start/end time

and display them on camera

Slide10 l.jpg

Or you can adopt a form

from local SHIPO Office

to be consistent (CRM)

CDA Tribe CRM is

a SHIPO Office so they adopted these on certain visits.

Field Techniques:

Audio tape during travel – Never have to much data










Shade, dark background

Slow pans

Smooth zooms

Shoot lots of footage

Slide12 l.jpg

Video/Audio Capture/Editing

Gather lots of data – never have too much

Use microphones

Use a tripod

Learn some digital editing software

Adobe Premiere is very versatile

Limit video clips to 180 seconds – Videos are enomorous

Slide13 l.jpg

Hardware Tips

Computer – have a beefy machine to do this.

lots of hard drive space (320x240 pixels @ 15fps = 100mb/min)

video card

sound card

lots of RAM


actually two for dubbing and archiving


actually two

Audio cassette player/recorder

with dubbing capabilities

Slide14 l.jpg

Editing in Adobe Premiere

Adobe Premiere takes a little bit to learn, but once

You play around with it, it works very good.

Slide15 l.jpg

Editing in Adobe Premiere

Remember all the footage from one site could be

Like 1hr of tape (couple of GB as well).

If you put on a website you need to get that 1hr of

tape down to about 3 minutes of a final video.

So a suggestion would be to listen and watch entire

video and come up with a storyboard or sequence

of scenes to cut and edit, this will save you a lot of time.

Slide16 l.jpg

Capturing Video

Capture via FIREWIRE Cable

directly into Adobe Premiere

save as AVI files.

Must capture into 3 minute segments

or the video files will be too massive

to work with.

When capturing, rewind next clip 10

seconds, this way when you put multiple

clips together there is overlap and they

can be fitted together better.

Video for editing, can import

and mix anything in


Title Pages can be

Made of any jpg or img.

Transitions between frames

or scenes.

ADOBE PREMIERE 6.5 Interface

Audio for editing,

can cut and mix anything in

Premiere (all sorts of music).

Slide18 l.jpg

Title Pages can be

Made and edited in

Adobe Photoshop, etc.

Usually takes about a

day or two from start

to finish per video.

Slide19 l.jpg

Output Formats

Generally it depends on your audience. We are putting ours on the web, so we stored our videos in 3 common formats:

RM (real media),


WMV (Windows Media™ video file)

Usually when editing in Adobe Premiere you are working

primarialy with AVI files, they are very big and slow to

put on a website.

Slide20 l.jpg

Sensitive issues

Rule of thumb

Beware of showing the locations of things that can be vandalized.

Graves, sacred sites, etc.

Indicate on field forms if something is present that should

be kept private .
