Description: The purpose of the Slave Wrecks Project is to provide opportunities for experience in cultural resource management, ethnography, archeology, and museum exhibit planning and design for the local youth/students of the Virgin Islands, specifically St. Croix but also the neighboring islands of St. Thomas and St. John. The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) has expressly supported their Virgin Islands Caribbean Cultural to be the contact for attracting student interns and support curricula, as per a Memorandum of Understanding between UVI and the National Park Service’s Christiansted National Historic Site (CHRI) (signed 2014). This will be accomplished through research, creation of workshops, conducting of oral histories, and development and installation of a series of temporary exhibits at Fort Christians Cavern CHRI. The UVI-Virgin Islands Caribbean Cultural Center has been identified by UVI as the program to partner with the NPS on the Slave Wrecks Project.
