As part of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), Congress established the NAGPRA Review Committee, and gave it formal responsibilities covering various critical aspects of NAGPRA's implementations. In establishing Review Committee, Congress sought to "ensure a balance between differing viewpoints among Native Americans, museums, and scientific organizations." This paper considers the Review Committee's involvement in NAGPRA and the important roles that the Society for American Archaeology played in support of fulfilling Congress's mandates and intent for NAGPRA and the Review Committee.
