ACCI welcomes our new summer student Jordan Graham
I am truly thrilled to begin my Museum Technician position at Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute. As I am still in my first week here, everywhere I turn there is something new- an artefact, a painting, a component of the architecture- that makes me appreciate, again, everything that ACCI represents, and all that the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee has accomplished, both in modern times, and times long past.
Before working here I have been involved in the field of Canadian Heritage through my positions as a Cultural Resource Management Archaeologist in Southern Ontario, and as the Collections Manager for The Battle Harbour Historic Trust in Labrador. In 2012, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from McGill University, and I am currently in the process of completing a Master’s degree in Archaeology at The University of Oxford.
To be a part of this project is an honour, and I very much look forward to working with the collections, the museum staff, and the wider community of Oujé-Bougoumou over the course of this summer.
