The Sam Noble Museum houses a recording studio run by Media Technician Michael McCarty. We record individuals, such as teachers or speakers, or language programs and classes, who wish to document Native American languages or create teaching materials for Native American languages. Mr. McCarty has created a comfortable recording environment for elders and others not used to being recorded.
Here are some examples of recordings made in house:
• Chickasaw Nation elders talking about childhood memories, telling stories, and singing hymns
• Mvskoke Creek instructor reading the first two books of the Mvskoke New Testament
• OU students recording Native American Church songs
• Choctaw instructor creating video about shape note singing
• Osage instructor recording a traditional story to be used in wintertime classes
