Indian Country Today has written an informative article about recent grants under the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) which will allow the remains of over 300 ancestors to return home.
"Besides repatriating more than 300 ancestors, the grants will enable the return of “numerous funerary and traditional items to Indian tribes across the United States, travel by Indian tribal representatives to consultations with museums holding potentially affiliated remains and other cultural items, specialized training for both museums and tribes on NAGPRA, and the development of a tribal coalition to collaborate and facilitate the repatriation of significant collections currently in museums,” the NPS said."
