TITLE II--PEOPLING OF AMERICA THEME STUDY

SEC. 201. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ‘Peopling of America Theme Study Act’.

SEC. 202. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) FINDINGS- Congress finds that--

      (1) an important facet of the history of the United States is the story of how the United States was populated;

      (2) the migration, immigration, and settlement of the population of the United States--

        (A) is broadly termed the ‘peopling of America’; and

        (B) is characterized by--

          (i) the movement of groups of people across external and internal boundaries of the United States and territories of the United States; and

          (ii) the interactions of those groups with each other and with other populations;

      (3) each of those groups has made unique, important contributions to American history, culture, art, and life;

      (4) the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, political, and economic vitality of the United States is a result of the pluralism and diversity of the American population;

      (5) the success of the United States in embracing and accommodating diversity has strengthened the national fabric and unified the United States in its values, institutions, experiences, goals, and accomplishments;

      (6)(A) the National Park Service’s official thematic framework, revised in 1996, responds to the requirement of section 1209 of the Civil War Sites Study Act of 1990 (16 U.S.C. 1a-5 note; Public Law 101-628), that ‘the Secretary shall ensure that the full diversity of American history and prehistory are represented’ in the identification and interpretation of historic properties by the National Park Service; and

      (B) the thematic framework recognizes that ‘people are the primary agents of change’ and establishes the theme of human population movement and change--or ‘peopling places’--as a primary thematic category for interpretation and preservation; and

      (7) although there are approximately 70,000 listings on the National Register of Historic Places, sites associated with the exploration and settlement of the United States by a broad range of cultures are not well represented.

    (b) PURPOSES- The purposes of this title are--

      (1) to foster a much-needed understanding of the diversity and contribution of the breadth of groups who have peopled the United States; and
