Tara Frank (Project Director: May 2017 to present)

Emergency and Disaster Preparedness for Collections and Archives Project

Training in disaster preparedness for staff at the cultural center of the Bishop Paiute tribe and purchase of emergency supplies for care of the tribe’s cultural heritage collections. The cultural center cares for approximately 4,500 historic and ethnographic objects, such as basketry and textiles, and 3,000 photographs and archival materials, documenting the culture and lifeways of the Paiute and Shoshone peoples. Staff would attend workshops at the California Preservation Program and would implement a disaster plan, following recommendations of previous preservation assessments.

The Bishop Paiute Tribe requests a Preservation Assistance Grant in the amount of $6,000 from the National Endowment for Humanities to fund Education and training and Supplies for the Owens Valley Paiute Shoshone Cultural Center which will result in a short and long term Emergency and Disaster Plan for the Humanities Collections and Archives of the Tribe.
