The Tibet Oral History Project team conducted 304 interviews in North America and 17 Tibetan refugee settlements in Nepal and India. The participants ranged in age from 58 to 95 (with a few younger exceptions) and originated from the three regions of Tibet: Amdo (Dhomay), Kham (Dhotoe) and Utsang.

This oral history collection is invaluable. It provides intimate portraits of the elders—the last generation to live in a free, unoccupied Tibet—and preserves for future generations memories of their homeland from the early to mid-1900s.
