The Haffenreffer Museum is proud to welcome Dr. Jessica Nelson as the new Curatorial Assistant for the "Engaging the Americas" Project. The four-year, $500,000 grant was initially awarded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in April 2018 and aims to document, conserve, and reorganize the ethnographic and archaeological objects in the Haffenreffer Museum collections.
The Haffenreffer Museum is proud to introduce a new virtual teaching resource for PreK-12 educators. This Land is Home: A Seasonal Round in Native New Englandis a self-paced, virtual learning module that explores how the seasons shape traditional and contemporary Indigenous lifeways in New England. This is a free resource that takes approximately 1 hour to complete, and although it is designed primarily for 3rd-5th grade students, it is an engaging learning experience for students of all ages.
As the Brown University community prepares for a hybrid virtual/in-person academic year, the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is offering new and adapted resources to support instructors and students during the Fall 2020 semester.
