    National Museum of the American Indian in 2001 is one of a growing generation of indigenous curators and librarians in New Zealand and Australia I chose to be a conservator because there weren t many Maori doing it so I saw a gap said Bloomfield who is Maori from the Ngati Porou tribe in New Zealand And I like the hands on aspect of conservation and the close relationship you build with objects As a summer intern in 2001 interviewed by email he wrote summer in quotation marks because the internship was during New Zealand s winter he worked preparing objects for the 2004 opening of the museum in Washington Bloomfield is now a conservator at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin Australia where the large indigenous population is reflected in the collection s many beautiful Aboriginal pieces contemporary and traditional He was impressed during his 10 week internship by the diversity of material and therefore the Native people of the whole Western Hemisphere and objects made from such a variety of materials he said But where the National Museum of the American Indian most influenced him was in its relationship building with tribal culture bearers I would say working at the museum reinforced things for me in terms of working with indigenous peoples and material Bloomfield said Things such as treating objects with respect and acknowledging their feelings and the need for proper consultation and relationships with traditional owners As his professional training spanned hemispheres so Bloomfield s interest in indigenous arts stretches from traditional arts made of natural materials to contemporary expression in new digital and video media We are not just ancient cultures who stopped existing when we were colonized Bloomfield said We are around and here now contributing to the 21st century Randy L He dow Teton Photo by Moz Studios Randy L He dow Teton the Shoshone Bannock Cree woman best known as the model for the Sacagawea coin was a conservation intern at the National Museum of the American Indian in 1997 I have a passion for ethnographic conservation she said doing small mending doing photography giving tips about how to take care of family heirlooms at home At the time of her internship Teton was a student at the Institute of American Indian Art She met a freelance artist while at IAIA and posed for pictures in which she portrayed Sacagawea She didn t know what it was for but later heard from the U S Mint that her face would be on the coin Teton is the youngest and only living person on a U S coin By the time she completed her bachelor s degree in art history from Fort Lewis College in Colorado Teton had fallen in love and her life would take a different path Now she and her young family live at the Shoshone Bannock reservation in southeastern Idaho and Teton works for a nonprofit organization Partners for Prosperity which does workforce training
