Native Voices: New England Tribal Families Exhibit Tour

Implementation of educational enhancements and a three-year expanded tour of an NEH-funded exhibition for children about Native American communities in New England.

Native Voices: New England Tribal Families, a touring exhibit, introduces children 5-12 years old and their caregivers to five Native communities of New England. Hands-on activities, immersive environments, collection objects, and first-person media present stories of the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy of Maine, the Narragansett of Rhode Island, and the Aquinnah Wampanoag and Mashpee Wampanoag of Massachusetts. The exhibit showcases and contextualizes BCM's Native American collection and builds on BCM's decades of collaboration with tribal communities to present contemporary perspectives. The exhibit will tour to six sites. Host sites will receive Native advised training for developing good working relationships with local tribes. A display case in the exhibit is available to support display of objects from the local Native tribes. Major tour expenses are covered by the grant and each host will receive a stipend to support the development of programs with local Native communities.
