Felicia Garcia

Community Outreach Manager

Felicia Garcia, a member of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians (Samala Chumash), earned her BA in Psychology at Willamette University and her MA in Museum Studies at New York University. Her master’s thesis focused on the need for Indigenous land acknowledgements in United States museums and led to the development of a guide to land acknowledgements for cultural institutions (http://landacknowledgements.org/). Felicia strives to use her position as a museum professional to carve out space for Indigenous people to tell their own stories so that our communities both see themselves in these spaces and feel seen.

Felicia is the Community Outreach Manager.
