In addition to researching repatriation she coordinates the Rapa Nui Repatriation Program, which she formed in collaboration with her Rapanui colleagues, among them elders, middle age traditionalists, and young professionals. Recently Visiting Faculty at UCLA, she is soon to start a Research Fellow appointment at the Smithsonian Institution.
