I've been working on a project with Jane Sledge at the Smithsonian's 
National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) and one thing we'd like 
to do is to support information describing the preferred traditional 
care of museum artefacts, particularly culturally sensitive artefacts. 
For example certain objects should be stored so that they face east, or 
must not be handled by women. Other objects, such as medicine bundles, 
should not be displayed or handled at all.

I've had a quick look through the CIDOC CRM and can't really find 
anywhere that this kind of information is supported? Any suggestions 
for where/how it could be incorporated.
