What are the follow-up procedures after museum visits?
Written reports are prepared
following each visit. These reports include evaluations of individual
objects; notations regarding further investigation; and lists
of catalog and accession records, field notes, photographs and
other documentation provided by the museum staff. The reports
also include notes on the experience of consultation with museums
and their staff members and recommendations for future visits,
research, and consultation.
Notes on further information required by museums are included
in the report and this information is forwarded to them as available.
Designated consultants may be contacted where further investigation
is needed on objects, tribal territories, or cultural practices.
Following reports to the tribes of materials associated with
their tribe or traditional territory, the Committee will assist
with filing claims for repatriation.
How is information
gathered and stored?
All information and documents,
photographs, recordings, etc. are stored in the CITRC office
and are available to all participating tribes. JAZ drives and
disks allow for transfer of large quantities of information to
offices of participating tribes.
