My name is Lillyanne, the community engagement intern from Indow. We (Indow) have worked with historic preservationists because of our low-impact window inserts. This relationship has evolved to Indow supporting historic preservationists who emphasize that a place's importance relies on the communities who value it. Our window zine aims to tell this side of the story.
We are hosting a $50 lottery on Instagram for those who comment, follow, and submit a photo/drawing of a Black History Site. I have drawn Black History Sites in Portland which are seen on our Instagram. We also made a video for further explanation of why Black History Sites and the zine further relate to Indow here.Here is the blurb:💰 Enter into the lottery by August 1, 2020 for a chance to win $50 💰 To enter your name into the lottery, ➡️ complete ALL three tasks ⬅️ The name drawn from the lottery will be individually notified via Instagram and email on August 1, 2020 💰 Each person only receives one slot regardless of how many submissions 💰 Questions or concerns?

What do a Civil War-era steamship, whaling ships, WWII aircraft & Japanese super-submarines have in common? These, and a multitude of other wrecks are firmly nestled in the waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands.
Journey with Dr. Hans Van Tilburg of NOAA as he shares tales of survival and intrigue and other historical accounts of Hawaii's underwater cultural heritage in this unique presentation.
The ocean is a museum of lost shipwrecks that reflect our maritime past in the Pacific, from the days of the explorers to the plantation era and two world wars. These wrecks are undiscovered bits of history that can tell us surprising things about the past. Finding them and surveying the nearby sites, particularly in the deep ocean, is a unique and challenging endeavor that has not been comprehensively explored until now.REGISTER on ZOOM: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CO6vMJ93TcCkNNQod3qN5AOR view the livestream on the HHF YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0zLY5aWMfPkwqBefISvyRg
The talk will include opportunities throughout for Q&A with the presenter.
Hans Van Tilburg was originally introduced to the ocean on board his father's sloop Brunhilde at the age of eight, and started to dive at the age of 11 in 1972.
He is currently the Maritime Heritage Cordinator Pacific Islands Region for NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries in Hawai`i and has served as a consultant for UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage program, as well as co-instructor for UNESCO's Underwater Cultural Heritage Foundation courses in Thailand and Jamaica and Sint Eustatius.
Hans has taught numerous university courses in maritime history and published over 30 articles and book reviews, as well as several books.
