Native American Museum Studies Institute (June 17-20)
From June 17-20, the Myers Center welcomed 18 tribal museum professionals and volunteers from across the country for its annual Native American Museum Studies Institute (NAMSI). Participants received four days of training in museum and cultural center development, repatriation, conservation, youth outreach, and more. Many thanks to our co-sponsors, the California Indian Museum and Cultural Center and the Pheobe A. Hearst Museum, and to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, which provided generous funding used to provide travel stipends to many of our participants.
