National NAGPRA Program Releases Report on Culturally Affiliated Native American Human Remains Not Published In Notices
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National NAGPRA Program, National Park Service, museums, Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, Culturally Affiliated Native American Human Remains Not Published In Notices

Washington, DC – The National Park Service (NPS) recently announced the release of a new report by the Native American Grave Repatriation Act Program (NAGPRA) entitled “Culturally Affiliated Native American Human Remains Not Published In Notices”. The report was compiled by Katherine Maas, a National NAGPRA Program Intern and graduate student in the George Washington University, Museum Studies Program.

National Park Service Director, Mary A. Bomar commented that, “We are pleased with the scholarship evident in the report and the cooperation of the George Washington University, Museum Studies Program, which made this internship possible at no cost to NPS.”

This report, which is available at www.nps.gov/history/NAGPRA, is intended to illuminate the circumstances surrounding a population of Native American human remains in museum and Federal agency collections across the United States that are still separated from their people. The remains of the 1,095 individuals discussed in this report have been culturally affiliated, but have not yet been published in notices of inventory completion, the critical step in the process of repatriation under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Through this report, the National NAGPRA Program hopes to encourage a satisfactory resolution in the cases of these 1,095 individuals, and to create a format for future National NAGPRA Program reports on the status of additional Native American human remains in institutional collections.

The National NAGPRA Program will continue to review inventory submissions in order to establish a more accurate figure. Development of a public access database of culturally affiliated individuals, listed in inventories of museums and federal agencies is in the works.
