help us to keep online the

Online Opata Library period 2020-2021

The goal is to promote the Opata Cultural Awareness and provide access to electronic resources, such as books, magazines, pictures, audio, videos, newspapers, and computer/internet access primarily related to the Opata Indigenous people from the Mexican State of Sonora, the U.S. state of Arizona, and the Opata diaspora around the world with an Indigenous Approach. With this repository, we will try to guarantee one point of access to all Opata documents ever written and published in one place with an Indigenous Approach through purchase and digital preservation, while honoring the rights of creators and expanding their online reach.

We will work with worldwide libraries and organizations to serve the Opata people, the Opata diaspora around the world, chroniclers, historians, independent researchers, and writers by building the online equivalent of an Indigenous public library/Tribal Library.
