In this project I have demonstrated my professional proficiency by curating an exhibit from conception to completion. During the duration of this project I was required to use diverse museum sciences skillset including collections management, curation, development and design of the exhibit. Curated and built inside the Great Hall at the Dorothy Ramon Learning Center in downtown Banning, ancestral lands of the Serrano, this project displays not only my career skillset but also my proud connection to the California Landscape. As Tongva of the Los Angeles River Basin, I also had the opportunity to showcase the artwork of other California Native Americans as an educational exhibit working to raise awareness of the cultural connections between nature and Native peoples.
