    Mark Rivett posted April 9, 2021

    The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990 (NAGPRA) created a federal legal process for the return of Native American human remains and cultural items to Native American Tribes and Native Hawaiian Organizations.

    The panelists will provide a basic overview of NAGPRA compliance through consideration of both tribal and museum sides of the process. They will explore the importance of transparency and agency, forging a connection between museum best practices and tribal ceremonial needs, and how mutual respect can grow into collaborations that extend beyond NAGPRA.

    William Johnson

    Ziibiwing Center of Anishinaabe Culture & Lifeways, Interim Director

    Veronica Pasfield
