Indigenous Program Associates


Plimoth Patuxet Museums seeks creative, outgoing, members of Indigenous communities who are interested in sharing knowledge and fostering public understanding of the history, heritage culture and lifeways of Indigenous communities of the Northeast. The focus is on the 17th-century, but also includes pre-contact as well as history and culture beyond the 17th century.

The Indigenous Program Associate (IPA) provides information and leads programs onsite and online for the Museum’s guests. Speaking from a modern perspective, the IPA gives timed, scheduled programs, talks and tours. The goal is to deliver a high quality, engaging, interactive and educational experience to guests. With a new Indigenous program building set to break ground in the coming months, we are seeking people who are inspired by the idea of helping to shape the future of the Museum’s Indigenous programs and exhibits.
A high school diploma or equivalent required. BA/BS in a related field such as Indigenous Studies, Education or History is preferred. Interest in and at least two years of experience working with the public in some capacity is essential. Experience working with children in a professional educational setting (school or club, etc.) is strongly preferred.
