Heard Museum (Phoenix, AZ 85004-1323)
Mario Nick Klimiades (Project Director: January 2020 to present)
Heard Museum Library and Archives - Collections Preservation Assessment Project

A preservation assessment of a library and archive collection dedicated to Native American art and cultures, covering topics such as Native American fine art, literature, anthropology, and museum studies. The library is home to 434,000 resources, consisting of books and journals, while the archives contain 300,000 photographs, 2,500 audiovisual recordings of Native music, lectures, interviews, and film-making, along with nearly 480 research collections. A cornerstone of the library is the Native American Artists Resource Collection, which brings together biographical information on 27,000 Native artists. The library and archives are used by scholars from around the world for public and educational programming, by students and faculty at local universities, and by the Heard Museum’s curatorial staff for exhibit development.

The Heard Museum’s Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives houses one of the world’s most unique and important collections of Native American materials, books, artist documentation, and archival collections. In the last decade, the Heard's Library and Archives have experienced rapid expansion and requires an assessment of current holdings and a long-range plan for the collections' preservation and accessibility. To achieve this goal, the Heard will retain the services of a preservation specialist to conduct a on-site visit to develop an assessment report with recommendations for future projects and planning.

Tragedy and Triumph: The American Indian Boarding School Experience

Tragedy and Triumph examines an important but often unknown period of American history. Beginning in the 1870s, the U.S. government aimed to assimilate American Indians into “civilized” society by placing them in boarding schools. Children were taken from families and transported to far-away schools where all signs of “Indianness” were stripped away. Students were trained for servitude and many went for years without familial contact—events that still resonate today. Boarding schools were designed to change American Indians, but it was American Indians who changed the schools. A sense of Pan Indianism grew on campuses, and advocates demanded reform. Eventually, schools came to celebrate the very culture they were designed to eradicate. The exhibit places archival materials, works of art, video, audio, and interactive technology in an immersive environment that conveys the complex history of these schools and recognizes the resilience, vitality, and creativity of American Indians.

American Indian Boarding Schools: History and Legacy, Transition in American Indian Boarding Schools

Planning for the reinterpretation and expansion of a permanent exhibition, two traveling exhibitions, and a catalog that would examine the experience of Native American youth in boarding and tribal schools from the nineteenth century to the present.

In 2000 the Heard Museum opened what was supposed to have been a 3-year exhibition depicting the harrowing experiences American Indian children and their families faced as the children were forcibly removed from their homes and sent to Indian Boarding Schools. The exhibition has been the Museum's most visited and most thematically powerful exhibition in the last 15 years. The exhibit is being updated to show the slow process that took place by which Native Americans made the schools their own, turning the schools into tools for self-realization and self-preservation. The expansion project includes adding new information to the existing exhibition to bring the boarding school story into the 21st century; an oral history project - Voices Heard; creating an accompanying catalogue, and creating a Traveling Exhibition for venues nationwide & a Traveling Panels Exhibit for the Museum's education department.
