This is a copy of AIO’s Repatriation project proposal submitted to the Pew Charitable Trusts in 1992. Repatriation: Culture recaptured is a two-pronged multi-year national education program to be undertaken in a true public-private partnership, forming alliances with several Federal agencies, national professional societies, museums, universities, and Native Americans. The goal of this partnership program will be to produce a comprehensive knowledge base concerning the unique cultures of native peoples. This information can be used to maintain and strengthen living traditions within native communities. Furthermore, these programs will engage the academic and museum communities in establishing a dialog with members of a native community about the significance of their cultural heritage.
