My grandfather's memories include the great Shoshone chief Washakie coming to the house, recorded in an interview in 1961.

Meet Heber, Milan’s grandfather, who passed away before he was born. Heber became real for him when, a few years ago, he was entrusted with a reel of audio from an interview recorded in 1961. This interview included his first-hand memories of the great Shoshone Chief ‪Washakie coming by the house for a cup of coffee. In an instant, a gentle voice and an amazing story made a grandfather’s life real. This was an early, and powerful moment for us about what it means to have a loved one’s voice and story recorded.
