First Interviews and Presentation

January 30, 2021 Off By Mira Pickus

This week, I officially began the interview phase of this project! I had my first interview this week with a current member of the Occaneechi. I also scheduled an interview to speak with a descendant of both the Saponi and the Couch family. I’m planning to speak with each interviewee several times.

I can’t give details from the interviews, so keep your eye out for the eventual piece!

Additionally, this week I gave a presentation about my journalistic process thus far. If you want to take a look, here’s a link to the recording.

More interviews next week!
