Tomaquag Museum part of new NEH grant for digitizing New England Native literatures

Tomaquag Museum is proud to be one of three indigenous partners with the University of New Hampshire in a $39,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The grant will support the digitization of writing by some of our esteemed authors, including Princess Red Wing, for inclusion on the website Writing of Indigenous New England (indigenousnewengland.com). Museum staff will learn to properly scan, upload and curate digital materials; staff will also participate in a planning process to establish protocols for protecting indigenous intellectual property rights. Other grant partners include the Passamaquoddy Cultural Heritage Preservation Office in Maine, and the Indigenous Resources Collective in Massachusetts.
