We support the proposition of unifying remnants of persons with Native American Heritage. People who share lost and undetermined links to cultures, languages, customs, and faiths can reconnect through research, group organization, and DNA. Additionally, much can be learned and archived about such things as: Health and history when biological questions are raised and answered.
