There should be an immediate moratorium on all anthropological and
archaeological endeavors within the United States which appropriate
the cultural heritage, indigenous knowledge, and sacred geography
of its indigenous peoples.

Proposal #2

The indigenous knowledge of Native American peoples must be
acknowledged as unalienable property.

Proposal #3

All sacred geography must be returned to Native Americans.

Proposal #4

Reparations must be paid for the appropriation and destruction
of Native American lives, land, and indigenous knowledge.
