Position Description: ​​Redwood National Park's (REDW) museum collection facility currently houses several archeological collections from ancestral Tolowa land that is now contained within the park. REDW has a close and evolving relationship with the Tolowa people regarding the management of their ancestral territory, archeological sites and collections stemming from these sites.

The ACE member will be supervised by the Curator of Redwood National Park and will learn and perform most of the duties of a museum technician for the National Park Service through researching, cataloging, and rehousing ancestral Tolowa collections following very structured Department of the Interior and National Park Service guidelines. This will include researching and visiting sites, if accessible, and using this knowledge to accurately identify artifacts within each site, catalog each artifact into the National Park Services mandated collections database, and rehousing each object by learning and practicing methods for effectively storing and housing museum collections. Additionally, the ACE member will have to work closely within the organization of Redwood National Park to fully understand each collection, including interacting with the Curator, archeologists, and the Program Manager of Resource Management and Science, as well as other staff.
