2009 AIC Angels Project
Sherman Indian Museum
9010 Magnolia Avenue
Riverside CA 92503

The 2009 AIC Angels Project will take place on Tuesday, May 19, at
the Sherman Indian Museum in Riverside, CA. The Sherman Indian
Museum is located on the campus of the Sherman Indian High School,
which derived from the Perris Indian School, the first
off-reservation Indian Boarding School in the state of California.
The museum is dedicated to preserving and exhibiting more than a
century of the school's history, student body history, Indian
boarding school history, and the ethnographic history of the staff
and students.  The museum's collection contains objects representing
tribes from all over the United States, as well as school records,
photographs and other memorabilia. In addition to holding
significance for current Sherman Indian school students and school
alumni, the museum's collection and archives are an important and
unique resource for the greater Native American community and the
general public.

The 2009 Angels Project will focus on inventorying, surveying and
re-housing objects and archival materials from this collection.

AIC members wishing to volunteer for this project should contact the
Angels project coordinator, Molly Gleeson <mcgleeson<-at->yahoo<.>com>
