Access to Native American Collections at the Abbe Museum

The Abbe Museum is requesting funding through the Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundations program to collaboratively develop and assess processes, systems, tools, and workflows to connect traditional cultural knowledge to Wabanaki collections at the Abbe Museum. These processes and tools will at the same time enable Native communities to reclaim control over access to and use of their cultural heritage. This project is a critical part of decolonizing our collections care, management, and interpretation practices at the Abbe Museum. It will add invaluable information that significantly increases the cultural and intellectual relevance and value of a unique humanities collection.
