Lisa Hsu Barrera
Anne Ray Intern
Lisa Hsu Barrera is currently completing her MA at the California State University at Chico. As a graduate student assistant for the California State Parks Capital District Museum and Historic Parks, one of the collections she is privileged to work with is the State Indian Museum Collection, which houses over 5,000 baskets. Lisa has also served as a collections management intern at the American Museum of Natural History, archaeological materials conservation intern at the US Embassy in Peru, and graduate student registrar at the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology.
Lisa looks forward to eventually working in Native collections as a collections manager, registrar, or curator. She is also interested in examining how the California State Parks Capital District Museum and Historic Parks collections can be redefined/re-valued to show their relevance to the community.
While at SAR, she will work to reach these goals by spending half of her time working on collections/ registration projects, and the other half of her time working on academic/education programming projects. Lisa will be in residence at SAR from September 1, 2012–May 31, 2013.
