I would like to take a moment to tell you how pleased we are with Claire.  Her knowledge and professionalism is outstanding.  I, for one, am very satisfied we hired you for the task of inventorying our collection, which is going along smoothly, thanks to Claire.

My museum has worked closely with B&A for the last several years, and find the company to be highly reliable, extremely knowledgeable about NAGPRA, and has the ability to produce results. I highly recommend Bernstein & Associates for either museums or tribes needing help with NAGPRA.

Fantastic Service

The training B&A provided was great value for money. It helped us advance our NAGPRA program, and the follow-up support went beyond the service level we expected. I look forward to future work with this company.

Great company to hire!

B&A have helped my museum not only through initial consultation procedures but has been a great resource for all questions related to NAGPRA without having to call the office in Washington D.C.

 Expertise and Service.

We have come to rely on Bernstein & Associates for accurate and well-considered answers to complex NAGPRA issues. They are always just a phone call away.

…was very informative and one of the best trainings I have ever attended.


Miigwetch (thank you) for all that you do on behalf of the tribes! Someday I know there will be a lodge and warm fire for you prepared by the ancestors

It’s a pleasure working with you.

The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan is thankful for all of the blessings that we receive through Jan’s work.

The spiritual well-being of our tribe and the future of our children is strengthened because of her. For that we will always be grateful.
