Since 1990, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) has provided for the protection and return of Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. At the onset of 2024, new federal regulations for NAGPRA went into effect that have had recent, widespread impact on museums, researchers, and Native communities. At the moment, questions abound regarding these recent updates.

Join us for an in-person, "crash course" on the history and context of NAGPRA by Ash Boydston-Schmidt, the NAGPRA Coordinator at the Maxwell Museum. She will include a brief overview of the new federal regulations for that and participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.
