The Pacific Regional Humanities Center (PRHC) was an initiative funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2002
and overseen by the UC Davis Humanities Institute. Created to generate and broker humanities research and public programs
for the Pacific United States and Territories--California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the
Northern Marianas, the PRHC emphasized the study of "place" in its many dimensions. From 2003 through 2006, the PRHC worked
primarily on oral history projects focusing on Angel Island and the Sutter Buttes. In 2007 the PRHC was reconceptualized as
the California Cultures Initiative.
