Makah Museum (Neah Bay, WA 98357-0160)
Janine Ledford (Project Director: December 2015 to June 2018)
Makah Museum Lighting Retrofit to Improve Exhibit Environment Project

Conversion to LED lighting in a tribal cultural center that houses a library/archives and object collection documenting the history of the Northwestern Coast Makah people.  The proposed project requires moving the Ozette archaeological collection from the current gallery to nearby temporary storage, installation of LED lighting, and reinstallation of the exhibit, as well as staff training in environmental monitoring protocols.

The Makah Cultural and Research Center proposes to replace an antiquated lighting system to protect artifacts on display and conserve energy resources. The current heating system produces excessive heat and will be replaced with an energy efficient LED system with controls and occupancy sensors.
