Nipmuc Community Internship

Book cover for Poor Richard's WomenThe American Antiquarian Society has established two six-month paid internships and one three-month paid internship for young people from the Nipmuc community. Interns will work with Indigenous archival materials at the Society. Funding for the program was received from a generous grant awarded by the United Way of Central MA through its Community Challenge competition.

In 2019, as part of its efforts to forge better connections with its neighbors in Central Massachusetts, the Society convened an Indigenous Engagement Advisory Committee, starting a dialogue with the Nipmuc tribal community on whose ancestral homelands the Society is built. In building that relationship, the Society developed this pilot internship program to offer young tribal members pathways to library work and the opportunity to learn about archival and historic preservation.

The project is directed by Kimberly Toney, Head of Readers’ Services and Director of Indigenous Engagement, who is a member of the Hassanamisco Band of Nipmuc.
