       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 Sates 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.
