American Indian undergraduate students from across Minnesota participated in a unique summer educational experience. The students selected for this intensive 3-week residential program attended classroom presentations and experienced hands-on learning about the museum field and other historical and cultural preservation organizations. The students also learned about various career paths and academic requirements for working in these types of organizations, both on and off reservations, as well as particular challenges faced by American Indian communities related to preserving tribal history.
