Native Peoples of Santa Cruz Program Series
Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, Santa Cruz
Project Director: Ms. Felicia Van Stolk
The Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History will collaborate with local Amah Mutsun Tribal Band leaders and Native American scholars on a series of programs to amplify the voices and increase understanding of the history and presence of the native peoples of our community. Programming will include a pine needle basket-making workshop, an outdoor walk discussing history and contemporary land stewardship, interactive stations on the properties of native plants, a learning workshop for educators on integrating local Native American history into curriculum, and an event public talk on misconceptions about indigenous peoples. By creating learning opportunities for the community and by supporting Tribal representatives, we can support the conservation of customs, language, oral histories, and traditions that are so important to this area. $5,000
