Curation and Conservation for Tribal Collections

May 28th 2010
Getty Villa Museum, Malibu

This event is designed to benefit staff, interns and volunteers at centers caring for tribal collections in the greater Los Angeles area, and to introduce them to resources available locally, nationally, and especially at UCLA. This event is designed to expose tribal members already working in area tribal museums and archives to professional and educational opportunities, to expose younger tribal members to projects related to their culture, and to encourage them to pursue higher education in fields relevant to museum and archival work.


  • Wendy Teeter, Curator of Archaeology at UCLA’s Fowler Museum: collaborating with communities in the curation of archaeological collections.
  • Ruth Bahylle, (Pawnee/Choctaw) UCLA PhD candidate in Archival Studies: archival management for tribal collections.
  • Ellen Pearlstein, Associate Professor, UCLA: incorporating tribal communities into graduate education in ethnographic conservation.
  • Molly Gleeson, (UCLA M.A. ’08) former Conservator at the San Diego Museum of Man: resources for collections care for tribal communities.
  • Özge Gençay Űstűn, (UCLA M.A. ’08) Assistant Conservator at the Southwest Museum of the American Indian: detection of residual pesticides applied to tribal collections and safe handling and response.
  • Jill Norwood, (Tolowa) Community Services Specialist, National Museum of American Indian: resources available to Native museums and cultural centers through the NMAI Museum Training Program.
