      NEH OFFERS SUSTAINING CULTURAL HERITAGE COLLECTIONS GRANTS

      The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is offering Sustaining
      Cultural Heritage Collections (SCHC) grants for projects beginning in
      October 2013. SCHC helps cultural institutions meet the complex challenge
      of preserving large and diverse holdings of humanities materials for future
      generations by supporting preventive conservation measures that mitigate
      deterioration and prolong the useful life of collections. The deadline for
      receipt of applications is Dec. 4.

      As museums, libraries, archives, and other collecting institutions strive
      to be effective stewards of humanities collections, they must find ways to
      implement preventive conservation measures that are scientifically sound
      and sustainable. This program helps cultural repositories plan and
      implement preservation strategies that pragmatically balance effectiveness,
      cost, and environmental impact. Organizations should design their projects
      to be cost effective, energy efficient, and environmentally sensitive, and
      should aim to mitigate the greatest risks to collections rather than to
      meet prescriptive targets.

      Visit
      www.neh.gov/grants/preservation/sustaining-cultural-heritage-collections
      for further details. For questions, contact the staff of the NEH’s Division
      of Preservation and Access at preservation@... or (202) 606-8570.
      Hearing -impaired applicants can contact NEH via TDD (866) 372-2930.

      VanDevelder, whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Esquire,
      Audubon Magazine and National Geographic Traveler, won a 2011 Oregon Book

      Empire through Indian Territory”.  His earlier book, “Coyote Warrior: One
      man, Three Tribes, and the Trial that Forged a Nation” was a finalist for

      family hosted the Corps of Discovery at the Mandan Villages in the winter
      of 1804.  VanDevelder is an investigative journalist, photographer, film
      maker and screenwriter whose film, “Journey to Medicine Wheel”, won Best
      Film honors from the American Indian Film Festival in 1998.

      TRIBAL ELDERS TO DISCUSS WILD HORSE ROUND-UP HISTORY, SEPT. 29

      For hundreds of years, the people of the Umatilla Indian Reservation
      communally rounded up their herds of horses, sorted out foals and mares,
      and employed family brands. Tribal elders of the Confederated Tribes of the
      Umatilla Indian Reservation will gather in a panel to discuss the round-ups
      beginning at 1 p.m., Sept. 29 at Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, at 47106
      Wildhorse Boulevard, Pendleton.

      The panel will include Bryson Liberty will share his experiences rounding
      up wild horses as a youngster. Douglas Minthorn, also a panelist, will
      share history about the lively horse culture of the Tribes when the Cayuse
      breed thrived.

      “It takes a certain amount of daring and nerve to live and work with
      horses, and that’s what made us who we are,” said Liberty.

      Visitors to the event will see historic maps and photographs of horse
      corral sites. Visit www.tamastslikt.org or call (541)966-9748 for
      additional information.

      Oh! How busy is the day! That might have been William Clark s comment about the last weekend of September, if he were a Corps of Discovery  living historian

        Oh! How busy is the day!

         

        That might have been William Clark's comment about the last weekend of September, if he were a Corps of Discovery living historian in 2012.

         

        [I know - that sounds a lot like a Star Trek time travel conundrum, doesn't it?  Are you sure that going back to save Governor Lewis would be a good idea?]

         

        Several PNLH members will be at Heritage Days at Sacajawea State Park near Pasco, WA on Sept. 28-29.  Presumably, most of those who won't be there already have other commitments.

         

        But wait...there's more!

         

        On Sept. 28-30, the Encounters on the Prairie Chapter will host a LCTHF Regional Meeting, celebrating the life of Sacagawea and commemorating the 200th anniversary of her reported death.  Here is a link to more information:

         

        http://www.eotp.net/The%20Pirogue,%20Spring%202012,%20Volume%205,%20Issue%201,%20June%202012.pdf

         

        And to add a non-Lewis and Clark event to the mix, there is also a Washington Civil War Assn. reenactment in Plain, WA, which Glen and I will miss that weekend.

         

        I think most of you will agree when I express the wish that I could attend all of these events.

         

        As Layne C. said, hopefully the Living History Conference will not always fall on the same weekend as Heritage Days!

         

        So where does that leave us?  With a question for Sally!

         

        Sally, will you have the opportunity to go to the ALHFAM conference?  If so, it would be fantastic if you would write something about it for the PNLHmembers group site.  Is anyone else from Fort Clatsop or the PNLH planning to go?  If not...you must be in the same boat with the many of us who wish we could go, but cannot.

         

        Thanks!

        John O.

         

        P.S. - If you really want to time-travel and meddle with the historical timeline, you could go to the Battle of Bemis Heights at Saratoga, and withhold medical attention from Maj. Gen. Benedict Arnold - who would then die as one of the great heros of the War of Independence, rather than go down in history as America's most famous traitor.  Arnold later expressed regret that he had not received a mortal wound that day.
