Opportunity: Senior Native Organizer Natural History Museum

Natural History Museum van

From the Natural History Museum:

We are seeking a Senior Native Organizer to join us in our mission to transform museums of science and natural history. The successful candidate will work with our team to guide sympathetic museums toward becoming more effective allies of Native-led struggles to protect land, water, cultural heritage and our collective future.

About the Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum (est. 2014) is a project of Not An Alternative, an activist art collective and nonprofit founded in 2004 that uses cultural organizing and creative advocacy to build a more equitable and just society.

The Natural History Museum was created as both an institutional transformation project and traveling museum. Teaming up with 150 top scientists and Nobel Laureates, we released a letter urging fellow museums to cut all ties to fossil fuel interests, and persuaded 9 museums to divest from fossil fuels, drop fossil fuel sponsors, or implement ethical funding policies. These efforts led oil mogul David Koch, a top funder of climate denial, to step down from the board of New York’s American Museum of Natural History after serving for 23 years.

After four years of attending and participating in museum conventions and professional associations, we have built relationships with museum directors and curators around the world. The Natural History Museum now partners with Indigenous communities to develop exhibitions and programs that bring environmental and climate justice concerns into mainstream natural history museums across North America. We research, publish and present; organize workshops, symposia and coalitions; and provide consulting to museum professionals on strategies for exhibitions, programs, public education and advocacy.
