I am very honored and humbled to have received an award from the North Carolina Society of Historians for the Native Heritage Project. Every year since 1941, this group has conferred awards on worthy nominees in 11 different categories, plus 2 special awards; the President’s Award and the Historian of the Year.
This year, The Native Heritage Project was awarded the Paul Green Multimedia Award.
The judges collective comments were:
“This is a monster of a project that seems to be well in control of a person having superior knowledge of her subject matter. There is so much data involved in the blog that it literally boggles the mind, yet it is the evidence and result of one with a serious quest to inform and educate. Everything we examined on the site was documented, interesting, enlightening and often, surprising. Ms. Estes demonstrates her masterful abilities in many areas relating to the site, one of which is setup and design. We give this entry ‘5 star,” and it is easy to see that it receives recognition based on the unanimous decision of our panel.”
