Burke Museum Association (Seattle, WA 98195-3010)
Julie K. Stein (Project Director: May 2020 to October 2021)
Sustaining Engagement with the Burke Museum's Native American Collections in the Time of COVID-19

The retention of three staff members to develop educational programing and community collaborations to promote understanding of Native American culture.

The Burke Museum’s Native American collections are the foundation for humanities-related engagement with students, Indigenous community members, and the general public, around Washington State and beyond. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Burke seeks support for staff members working with these collections in new capacities in these areas: *Education: The Burke provides collections-based education through field trips, a traveling museum, and the region’s largest resource of portable study kits. *Tribal Consultation: The museum works to change patterns of cultural dominance by actively involving tribal communities in all aspects of preservation and interpretive work, including in relation to our humanities collections. *Bill Holm Center for the Study of Northwest Native Art: The BHC creates opportunities for the intergenerational transfer of cultural practices and knowledge within Native communities and promotes appreciation of these cultures in the public at large.
