Events for October 2016
Ohio Historical Society is seeking a Project Manager for possible World Heritage sites in Ohio. Many sites like Serpent Mound and other so-called "Hopewell" sites will be included, and as World Heritage sites they will receive much attention, money, and tourism. As this project is being negotiated, having a Native person or an ally at the helm could ensure that indigenous perspectives are given more weight. Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested. https://www.ohiohistory.org/about-us/jobs
