This event will highlight the collaboration and cooperation between Tribes and the University of Michigan as the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) nears the 30th year since its passing. This legislation provides a process for the return of Native American human remains, funerary and sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony from museums and federal agencies to federally recognized Indian Tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations. This roundtable will engage four panelists, including members of the Michigan Anishinabek Cultural Preservation and Repatriation Alliance (MACPRA), to consider past NAGPRA work, and the work that lies ahead.
