Project Overview
The U of M and MNHS are collaborating to enhance heritage education across Minnesota. This project engages students in field experiences with the archaeological collections and interpretive programs at Historic Fort Snelling and is providing research support for new programs at the Oliver Kelley Farm. These projects will help build models for collaborative instruction that fosters cultural heritage awareness and protection. Through the projects, the students will be exposed to the breadth of Minnesota's diverse artifacts, sites, stories, and traditions, thus nurturing future generations of professionals who understand the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of heritage and preservation work. Secondary benefits of this initiative include building better community-institutional relationships and fostering broader public support for cultural heritage awareness and protection.
