History museum re-opens Native American exhibit

Jo Wolfe knew it would take a lot of energy to reorganize the extensive Native American Collection at the Skagit County Historical Museum.

Fortunately, there was someone perfect for the job.

Intern Maggie Telford, a 2022 University of Washington graduate in anthropology, used her technology skills and love of history to inventory, identify, document and care for the 804 Native American items at the La Conner museum over the course of an eight-month assignment.

She shared her mission Thursday evening with an engaging presentation before a standing room only audience in the museum’s east wing.
