Earlier this month, Cultural History Interpreter, Barinaale Dube, and I had the pleasure of presenting the Preserve’s work on our ongoing Cultural History Project to Prince William County’s RELIC Room.
Our presentation, titled “Making History Our-Story: An Ongoing Cultural Case Study from an Open-Air Museum” discussed the efforts we have embarked upon to present an inclusive and equitable history of the Preserve’s diversely peopled past, and a few case studies that have surfaced from our research.
