Develop Disaster Plan to Preserve Native American Archives and Artifacts

The Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center (CNMCC), an entity of the Comanche Nation, preserves and interprets Comanche history and culture for the education of tribal and non-tribal members. It holds the most comprehensive collection of Comanche Fine Art that includes not only paintings and works on paper but also textiles, sculptures, jewelry, beadwork, and woodwork from established and emerging Comanche artists. The collection also includes items relevant to Comanche history and culture such as archival and ethnographic materials, photographs, and textiles dating from the late 1800s to present. CNMCC represents a living culture that is slowly being lost. It seeks to preserve Comanche heritage by engaging a conservator to develop an Emergency Preparedness/Disaster Plan. The conservator will assist the CNMCC Disaster Plan Committee in drafting the components of the Disaster Plan as well as completing two site visits to discuss disaster planning and implementation.
