Working closely with the client, we assess their individual needs and break those needs down into manageable projects with realistic timelines, providing a strategic plan tailored specifically to the client’s unique situation.
Summary and Inventory preparation
Because of the long-standing, positive working relationships that we have built with Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations throughout the country, we are extremely successful in aiding clients in the preparation of culturally sensitive NAGPRA Summaries and Inventories.
NAGPRA grant writing
We consistently write successful Consultation/Documentation and Repatriation grant proposals. Since 1995 when we began writing NAGPRA grants, our grants have secured over two million dollars of funding for our clients, with grants being funded every year.
Consultation support including meeting planning and facilitation
We provide support for all phases of consultation, including planning, implementation, documentation, and follow-up. Our level of support in each phase is determined by the client’s needs. Tribal representatives frequently praise our culturally sensitive, insightful, and respectful approach to consultation.
Federal Register Notices, Repatriation claims, physical transfer, and reburial
We assist clients in each aspect of the repatriation process from repatriation claim development to courier services to reburial sites and everything in between. We develop the necessary documents, including notices of inventory completion and notices of intent to repatriate, repatriation requests and claims, disposition agreements, and reinterment scope of work of work agreements. We also assist with reinterment, including transportation.
Our Managing Director, Jan Bernstein, provides clients with customized lectures, seminars, webinars, and workshops on all aspects of NAGPRA.
