The Mojave National Preserve is seeking a partner to aid in identifying and understanding historic and contemporary associations of African Americans with the Lanfair Valley community. The partner will be tasked with completing an ethnographic study that will document the historic relationship and contemporary values and beliefs these people have regarding the area. Lanfair Valley, in the Mojave National Preserve, in San Bernardino County, California, USA, preserves a remnant of an African American homesteading community settled and farmed from 1910-1930 with some families remaining into the 1950s. The area provides insights into the life of early 20th century African American homesteading families.
