Chyla Hendricks Joins Museum


Please join Tribal Historic Preservation in welcoming new intern Chyla Hendricks to the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Museum.

Chyla will gain valuable work experience with museum attendants Anita (Mother Bear) Peters and Courtney Powell as they share Wampanoag cultural history with the public.

Chyla is a recent high school graduate and in the fall she will study nursing at UMass Boston.

Chyla’s internship is part of the Building Pathways for Tribal Youth under the NYCP grant. Through this program, the Indian Education Department is able to coordinate a variety of exciting internship opportunities with area businesses and organizations. The internships opportunities are open to tribal youth ages 14-19 years old and range from areas such as small business and historic preservation to natural resources and communications.
