"I am very fortunate to be part of an organization whose social-emotional programs and publications inspire and support the educators who are preparing our children and youth to be the future keepers of our world." 

The Origins Program has a colorful and creative past. Miriam was with us in the beginning (the 1970s), when we introduced the arts and cultures of North American Native groups to museum audiences across the United States. Her own artistry led her to a second career in garden and landscape design. In 1999, Miriam returned to The Origins Program. She currently is the customer service and logistics coordinator.
