The American Indian Summer Seminar offers a unique educational experience for American Indian students from across Minnesota. The 15 students selected to participate in this intensive three-week residential program will attend classroom presentations and experience hands-on learning about the museum field and other historical and cultural preservation organizations. The students will learn 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.
