Ethnography Program – National Park Service SE Region

Antoinette Jackson, Ph.D. served as the Regional Cultural Anthropologist and Ethnography Program Manager for the National Park Service Southeast Region, August 2012-May 2016. The main focus of the NPS ethnography program is connecting people to parks. Jackson and her team provided consultation and technical assistance in the areas of community engagement and cultural resource management, development, and preservation for the region’s 66+ national parks from the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park in Kentucky and the Wright Brothers National Memorial in North Carolina, to the Cane River Creole National Park in Louisiana and the Biscayne National Park in Florida.
