COLLABORATIVE STRATEGIES FOR THE PRESERVATION OF NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN MATERIAL CULTURE

BRUCE BERNSTEIN


ABSTRACT—Collections management, exhibitions, and research are areas in which collaboration will help the museum as well as provide a role for Native American people in the preservation and interpretation of their cultural heritage. Using the repatriation work of the Museum of New Mexico as a case study, the author suggests that the repatriation process benefits a museum by resulting in better programming and preservation.
