FBP partners include the American Philosophical Society, which holds the majority of Boas’ papers, the University of Nebraska Press, the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Tribal Council, the University of Western Ontario and the University of Victoria, as well as scholars and researchers in Canada, the United States and Europe. The Indigenous Advisory Council (IAC) for the FBP, comprised of Indigenous scholars representing member universities of the FBP as well as Indigenous organizations, advises the FBP team on matters of cultural sensitivity, Indigenous intellectual property, and community-based research protocols and partnerships.  The IAC is taking the lead on volumes focusing on contemporary Indigenous research pertinent to Boas-related archival collections.
