The exhibit, created by Sarah Petroff, is one of the projects completed for her internship under Dr. Mills Kelly and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media in summer 2020. With the guidance of Dr. Kelly and assistance from Dr. Gabrielle Tayac, Sarah based her exhibit on the histories and representation for American Indians along the Appalachian Trail. She digitally researched her topic from a variety of sources such as museums, libraries, and state parks and virtually met with both professors to review the exhibit's layout and content. Sarah is a student at George Mason University who will graduate in spring 2021 with a Major in History, a Concentration in Public History, and a Minor in Anthropology.
