Native American-Led Projects Get $4.5 Million from the National Endowment for the Humanities

More than 20 Native American-led humanities projects are among the latest awardees of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) $33.8 million fund.

Awarded projects include an Iñupiaq Public History Project, an intergenerational knowledge-sharing effort in Taos, New Mexico, and the construction of the Tomaquag Indian Memorial Museum in Exeter, Rhode Island. Funding for Native American projects totals approximately $4.5 million.

“This funding will help preserve and expand access to community histories, strengthen the ability of small museums and archives to serve the public and provide resources and educational opportunities for students to engage with history, literature, languages, and cultures,” NEH Chair Shelly C. Lowe (Navajo) said in a statement.
