African Americans and NAGPRA: The Call for an African American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (2016)

The permit application...

Community interests have centered on placing the re-interment place on university campus property and at a location of CA-LAn-234, a National Register listed...


A Brief and True History of SAA's Involvement with NAGPRA (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

SAA was heavily involved in NAGPRA's passage, and played a key role in shaping the compromises embodied in this law. The Society's positions with respect to the many repatriation bills considered by Congress were conditioned by SAA's "Statement Concerning the Treatment of Human Remains," a policy adopted in 1986. SAA strongly and actively supported the final bill precisely because it conformed closely, albeit not perfectly, to the principles articulated in this statement. The policy was also...

Complex Journeys: The Repatriation Experience and Tribal-Museum Relations (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

Tribes and museums have experienced a paradigm shift in their relationships during the twenty-five years of the NAGPRA era. The experiences of each group have been multi-faceted and complex, driven by new legal mandates and opportunities and shaped by differing viewpoints as to what must, should, and could emerge from the repatriation journey. This paper will explore some of the assumptions, experiences, and future expectations that NAGPRA has engendered in various tribal and museum...


Consultation and Beyond: NAGPRA as a Gateway to Collaboration (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

With NAGPRA’s passage 25 years ago, many saw this federal mandate as an opportunity for museum professionals, scientists, and Native Americans to assess and change the dynamics of their relationships. Few however, likely anticipated the full range of collaborations between Native communities and institutions that emerged from NAGPRA consultations. One such example is the ongoing partnership between the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) and the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center in...


Context and Collaboration: The Maxwell's Repatriation to Jemez Pueblo (2016)

Citation DOCUMENT

The Pueblo of Jemez and the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology have been working together since 2007 to document human skeletal remains in preparation for repatriation. Challenges presented in preparing for repatriation included a paucity of field notes and other records, as much of the material came to the Museum from 1930’s field schools, and a loss of information about which burial objects were originally with which burials. Despite these challenges, over 700 individual skeletons have been...

Cultural Affiliation Report, Chapter 1: Background and Scope for the Kennewick Man Cultural Affiliation Reports (2000)

DOCUMENT

As part of its responsibilities in the Kennewick Man case, the Department of the Interior was trying to make a determination of the disposition of the human remains under the requirements of NAGPRA. Since the issue of disposition was at least in part related to whether the remains could be culturally affiliated under the terms of NAGPRA, four studies by experts in anthropological, archaeological, cultural, and historical topics relevant to this determination were undertaken by the DOI....
