Repatriation, Indigenous Rights, and Museum Collections: A Conversation for NAGPRA’s 30th Anniversary

On November 16, 1990, Congress passed the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). This important human rights legislation aimed to restore dignity and respect to the ancestral human remains and cultural objects being held in museum collections, and provided a process for their repatriation to culturally affiliated tribes, lineal descendants, and Native Hawaiian Organizations. Join us for a panel discussion about what repatriation means for indigenous communities, museums, and our understanding of the human past and our collective present.
