INT 100/201 APPROVED
In 1990, many Indigenous Americans were laid to rest for the first
time in centuries. Congress passed the Native American Graves
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), requiring museums,
universities, and other institutions to return items that belonged to
Indigenous Americans. Most crucially, NAGPRA required the return of
actual human remains and other sacred relics.
Jay Sam, tribal member and Director of Historic Preservation of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians & Janet G. Brashler, Retired Professor of Anthropology at Grand Valley State University, will discuss their firsthand experiences with implementing NAGPRA in 1990s West Michigan. They will speak to their perspectives as professionals on either end of these exchanges, and how their views on NAGPRA have changed in the past 30 years.
This Zoom webinar is free and open to the public, but you must register for the webinar to receive a login link.
