               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
            (2) to strengthen the ability of the National Park Service 
        to include groups and events otherwise not recognized in the 
        peopling of the United States.
