HMRP Receives Lynn Reyer Tribal Development Award

Lynn Reyer Award for Tribal Community Development has been awarded to the Hopi Music Repatriation Project for its work in returning traditional music to the reservation.  The award, given to researchers based on the quality and relevance of projects that assist in the development of indigenous communities, will help HMRP fund its repatriation work this summer.  Ted Jojola, President of the Society for the Preservation of American Indian Culture which oversees the award, explained that proposals this year were “very competitive . . . with many outstanding projects being submitted from across the country.”  HMRP thanks the Lynn Reyer Award board and the SPAIC for their support of this important effort.
