Indigenous Peoples Research Foundation's picture

Indigenous Peoples Research Foundation

The Indigenous Peoples Research Foundation was established to protect and research intriguing artifacts recovered from several locations in the Southeastern region of North America, with the goals of more fully understanding the pre-Columbian history of North American indigenous cultures and finding a public venue for their permanent display.

Many of the artifacts illustrate there is still much to be learned about the pre-Columbian history of the region.

It is hoped that our efforts will incrementally be helpful in providing a clearer picture of this fascinating period.

We invite you to review these artifacts in our developing website, and contact us with comments or questions.
