The Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) was passed in 1990 as civil rights legislation to facilitate the repatriation of Native American ancestral remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony from federal agencies and museums. Over 30 years later, fewer than half the ancestors reported in museum collections have been repatriated. NAGPRA is simultaneously complex and simple—full of both flaws and opportunity for museums and tribal communities. Peabody Curator of Collections, Marla Taylor, will explain the process and logistics behind the law, as well as the complicated history between the Peabody Institute, the Wabanaki Confederacy, and NAGPRA compliance.
