This was especially true in 1998 when Marian Kaminitz, head of conservation at the National Museum of the American Indian, hired David Moses Bridges, a Passamaquoddy birchbark canoe builder then apprenticing with me, and myself, to help restore a beautiful old birchbark canoe.


Museum: Seeds of understanding accompany interns into wider fields of work | American Indian News Service

Since 1991, more than 130 conservation interns have spent from 10 weeks to two years honing skills under the leadership of Marian Kaminitz, the head of conservation at the National Museum of the American Indian.
Kaminitz was already at work at Heye's Bronx storage facility, assessing the collection and preparing for its move to the museum's state-of-the-art conservation facility, the Cultural Resources Center in Suitland, Md., which opened in 1999. To view a video about the move, go to: www.AmericanIndian.si.edu/subpage.cfm?subpage=collections&second=collections&third=move#f The interns come to the museum's conservation department to work with Kaminitz and to obtain real-world experience working with the collection, which spans North and South America. Many say they have been personally affected by their experience. On the first day of Anna Strankman's internship in 1996, Kaminitz sent her outside to watch conservation work on a totem pole.
