The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) of 1990 and companion federal regulations establish a process for museums and other institutions that receive federal funds to return certain human remains, funerary and sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony to Native American tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and lineal descendants that demonstrate requisite relationships to the remains and other items.
In keeping with NAGPRA and the values of our institution, UIUC is fully committed to the repatriation of our Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian collections. In this process, it is our priority to engage in consultation with tribal communities and lineal descendants.
