Oral #2: CANDACE BRYAN – The Relationships between Museums and Native Americans: A Case Study of the Natural History Museum of Utah

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Elizabeth Archuleta

My honors thesis is a case study of the Natural History Museum of Utah (NHMU) through a review of the relationships between Native Americans and museums. I studied the history of museums in the U.S. by talking about expositions that began the U.S. anthropology and museum movement. I also researched the ways that Native American people have influenced museums through collaboration and tribal museums. Using this knowledge, I did a case study on the Native Voices exhibit at the NHMU.
