'How Museums Are Deepening Their Commitments to Native American Perspectives'

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation published a blog post touting its role in helping to “diversify the pipeline of future cultural heritage and museum professionals; ensure that cultural heritage preservation is approached with care and expertise that increasingly centers Native communities and traditions; and ensure the passage of those traditions across generations.”

The post continues:

The Heard [Museum in Arizona] and PEM [Peabody Essex Museum in Massachusetts] fellowships are two examples [described in this post] among a group of Mellon grants to museums in the US with collections of Native American art. The Foundation has supported the re-installation of the Hall of Native North America at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago; a full-time Native Arts curatorial position at the Denver Art Museum; and undergraduate curriculum development for a concentration in Native American and Indigenous studies at Brown University, in Providence, among other initiatives. …

While the number of Native American museums and cultural centers has tripled over the past 30 years, there remains a dearth of curators, directors, and others in leadership roles who identify as Native American.

For more information, read the blog post.
