The Institute of Museum and Library Services announced the award of 21 grants in its Native American/Native Hawaiian support program. The Crow Tribe of Montana was awarded one, and WOLF Consulting will facilitate the strategic planning for the project. Here is the project description:
The Crow Tribe will launch a strategic planning initiative to guide the development of a cultural center on the campus of Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency, MT. A master planner and an architect will lead the process, and each stage will involve students, faculty and staff, Crow community members, and other interested parties through surveys and community meetings. Beyond stakeholders’ input, rotating members of the planning committee will visit four cultural centers to see first-hand how other indigenous communities have developed their cultural centers. The work team will use the accumulated data to guide the production of a strategic plan and the final concept plan. The cultural center will serve as an access point along with the tribal library and archives to perpetuate Crow culture and history through rotating displays and cultural activities on a regular basis. http://lib.lbhc.edu/index.php?
