Tribal Historic Preservation Office is requesting citizens and descendants to share your family’s historical and contemporary pictures involving family/cultural activities or Tribal events that represent the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band community. You can submit a scanned/digital copy of the photos to, or you can schedule an appointment with THPO staff to scan the photos. If you select to have the THPO staff scan your photos, we will be able to provide you with a digital copy of the scanned photo(s) via email or a USB thumb drive (depending on the number and size of files). These photos will be processed and included in the MBPI Archives. We hope to begin sharing photos in quarterly Tribune articles showcasing objects, photos, documents and materials from the MBPI Archives.

We ask that if possible you provide a title and/or brief description of the photo (ex. who is pictured, where is the location, what activities they are participating in, approximate year the photo was taken, etc.). If you have any questions, you can contact the Tribal Historic Preservation Office at 269.397.1780 or

If you are interested in donating any other documents, materials and/or objects, please call ahead to schedule an appointment with THPO staff at 269.397.1780 and fill out the Temporary Custody Agreement that can be found here.
