This note is for anyone who works with amazing interpreters… and that’s basically everyone!
We are looking for nominations for “Interpreter(s) of the Month” for the NAI Region 9 Newsletter. If you work with someone who shows dedication and passion doing what they love to do, then please let us know about them! We want to recognize the good work being done in our Region.
Contact Ryan Bangs (ryanbangssmc2015[at]gmail.com) to nominate an interpreter you know. All that is needed is a few sentences on why you believe they are so amazing.
As you may have heard, the NAI section formerly known as Cultural Interpretation of Native Peoples has been dissolved. Many of us are interested in reinventing this organization as Interpreting Native Cultures and would, for the time being, be a chapter of the Cultural and Historical Interpretation section. If you have been involved with CINP in the past or are interested in becoming involved, please take this 5 minute survey to help us decide what our members need from this organization and how we will structure the group in the future. Thank you!
Survey for Input on Interpreting Native Cultures
Your insight is important to us. Please take 5 minutes to share your thoughts on the 2018 NAI Region 9 Workshop. Thanks for joining us at Camp Loma Mar and providing valuable feedback to improve 2019!
NAI Region 9 Spring 2018 Workshop Survey
With a long history leading the profession of Interpretation, our members from across California, Nevada, and the Pacific Islands continue to inspire and convey the meanings within our cultural and natural assets. From the Rangers in California State Parks, to the Naturalists guiding whale watches in Hawaii, and the interpreters working to share the stories of the first peoples of Nevada; our members work in parks, museums, aquariums, art galleries and many other locations. We endeavor to share the meaningful stories of the people, places, and ideas that we all hold dear.
The Sierra Pacific Region is a small part of a larger community of professional interpreters. Through this website, trainings, workshops, and many other opportunities, we strive to support and grow the Interpretive Profession and the people that our profession impacts.
