Corrales said he dismisses the use of the word "prehistory" in the discussion of early inhabitants.He said that term is pejorative, Eurocentric and dismissive of the many sources, including oral history, that are available to investigators.He said he prefers the term "ancient history" or "pre-Columbian." Corrales, in accepting the position, said that the Museo Nacional ought to have an important role in creating a Costa Rica that is multicultural and multiethnic., He also said he considered his selection a vote of confidence in museum staff. At present, said Corrales, the staff of the museum is involved in introspective studies so that the museum will be capable of meeting modern challenges.
