Repatriation and NAGPRA

Legislation concerning the treatment of the human dead has been passed, with wide-reaching implications for archaeologists.

American Indian Quarterly
Special issue on repatriation; this site includes abstracts of each of the articles. Vol 20(2), 1996.

American Indian Ritual Object Repatriation Foundation
A non-profit group committed to assisting in the repatriation of ceremonial objects.

National Archaeological Data Base (NADB)
Indexed archaeological site reports and documents resulting from the Native American Graves Repatriation Act in the United States.

National NAGPRA
From the US National Park Service, a long-needed resource guide to the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act, with information tailored to the Native American community, museums, agencies, the public, and the press.

Repatriation Issues
From the Society for American Archaeology, an archive of position papers on repatriation and the reburial movement.

Smithsonian Institution's Repatriation Office
One of the benefits of NAGPRA has been that study of many of these objects is finally being completed, in some cases after 75 years or more reposing in the nation's museums.
