    Individual Placements

    January 19th, 2023 | WASHINGTON, D.C. - Read full article: Despite my long history with National Parks, I didn’t realize that I was missing a core personal connection with our public lands — learning about Chinese American history. While I learned a lot about white American history, from the battles of the Civil War to colonial settlement, it was rare that I came across exhibits featuring my own cultural identity or history.

    Indigenous Insight Informs NPS Exploration And Development Of Sacred Site

    Individual Placements

    March 5,2021 | Werowocomoco rests atop a bluff on a peninsula in the Tidewater region of eastern Virginia, surrounded by marshlands, fields, and forests. It is a lush and verdant place, rich in plant and animal life—but most importantly, rich in Indigenous history and heritage.

    Until recently, the site’s exact location was lost to the memory of the tribes who once inhabited it. Now recently rediscovered, Conservation Legacy and the National Park Service are collaborating with Native tribes to learn more about Werowocomoco, incorporate it into the National Park System, and accurately and respectfully interpret it for future visitors.
