Eagle Feather Research Institute is a non-profit service organization that provides valuable historical and cultural information relative to Native American, Spanish-Speaking Mestizo peoples as well as other cultural groups (Jewish, Gypsy, African American, Arabs, and women) that have heretofore been stereotyped due to religion, politics, gender or race. One of its principle goals is to fill the cultural and historical gaps of information that exist in textbooks, movies and education with the expressed purpose of eliminating stereotypes, erroneous and damaging information. In an ever shrinking globe, it is of foremost importance to create a positive view of the aforementioned groups and unquestionably propitious to accentuate the positive contributions of their past as a people in the making of a Nation. It is only through a true understanding and a rectification of cultural and historical error that we can learn to live together in harmony and peace as we begin the XXI century.
