This grant will support the Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture & Lifeways’ E’aawiiyaang (Who We Are) Conservation & Preservation Project. The E’aawiiyaang Project was initiated in response to outside professional audits and to comply with the Ziibiwing Center’s strategic plan. Therefore, the goals for this grant are derived from a Heritage Preservation and Institute of Museum and Library Services Conservation Assessment Program collection survey performed by Ruth Norton of the Chicago Field Museum on February 3, 2006.
