Located at the Four Corners area of Colorado, the Anasazi Heritage Center is at a prime location for archaeological finds and close to the descendant populations of the ancestral Pueblo Indians of New Mexico and Arizona. The Anasazi Heritage Center works to preserve and display archaeological evidence from the ancestral Puebloan culture and bring the evidence, information and cultural resources to the American public. The AHC staff manages over three million artifacts, samples and original documents.
AHC interns can work in various departments to further their experience in archaeology, anthropology and collections management. Collections management interns assist the museum curator, working with the museum’s cataloging system and helping to reorganize and inventory existing collections at the AHC. With supervision from AHC staff, exhibits and interpretive media interns brainstorm and prepare a display, and visitor services interns plan and conduct interpretive programs. Visitors services interns also work at the museum’s front desk.
Open to college freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, recent grads and grad students with access to a car. International students are eligible. Applicants with prior background in archaeology, anthropology and collections management will be given preference.
