2. Education and Job Training for Artists and Arts Administrators

change the way museums do business

Museums in this country still hold Native cultural artifacts in their collections. NAGPRA doesn't cover Canadian artifact stolen from the families of Native Americas covered by the Act. The Seattle Art Museum is a prime example. In his book Letters Home, Frank Boas describes the grave robbing he performed. The federal government needs to end this loop hole. In its place, replicate what the Makah Tribe of Washington State did with artifacts, copy them. Begin a new cultural revolution place the emphasis on objects made by native children that can be touched, sold, and treasured.
