Makah Museum (Neah Bay, WA 98357-0160)
Janine Ledford (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Makah Museum Virtual Tours

The retention of eight core staff, and hire of technical consultants, to produce a virtual tour of the museum, narrated by Makah people. The museum holds archaeological materials from the Ozette site, dating to ca. 500 years ago, diverse material culture, and historic photographs that document the history and culture of the Makah people.

The Makah Cultural and Research Center will produce a virtual tour experience for visitors who cannot visit the world-class museum due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Museum is closed for the first time in 40 years. Makah people will narrate the tour to enhance the visitor experience, and high resolution digital video, combined with historic and contemporary photographs will complement the 500 year old objects on display and will offer the viewer the opportunity to recognize the continuity of culture that exists today.
