The Seneca Nation of Indians will foster professional growth for staff members of the Seneca Iroquois National Museum while improving its exhibitions to provide a deeper understanding of Seneca culture and history for its visitors. In support of a new longhouse exhibit, the museum will use its 3D printer and partner with local artists and cultural bearers to create immersive, tactile experiences featuring replica Seneca objects that would have been found in use by ancestors. Museum staff members will participate in a training that will focus on interpretation techniques to more effectively engage with visitors through public tours. Additional training opportunities will focus on creating team cohesion and healthy conflict resolution through the establishment of new workplace norms for the new museum facility.
