Review for Cultural Survival, Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

SC has not published its 990 IRS forms for several years, nor any annual reports in some time. So it is impossible to get much idea of what they are spending. They seem to be involved in a program involving the revitalization of American Indian languages, including one that has been "dead" for over two hundred years. They also seem to count their bazaar fundraising simultaneously as a program activity as well as fundraising. The rationale is that it provides a market for indigenous craftsmen. To some extent this seems to be true, but the goods sold at the bazaar have in recent years become less interesting and more commercialized.
