NAGPRA Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: The Law and Ethics of the Kennewick Man Controversy

NAGPRA Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: The Law and Ethics of the Kennewick Man Controversy

Date: April 3, 2008
Creator: Sowa, Graham & Nagaoka, Lisa
Description: This presentation discusses research on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) and the law and ethics of the Kennewick Man. On the bank of the Columbia River in 1996, the remains of a Native American man were found and dated to 9,300 years ago. NAGPRA mandates that tribes be notified when Native American remains are found. Tribes were not notified of these remains; however the remains were found to be "culturally unaffiliated". The remains are currently being stored at the Burke Museum, after the courts ruled against the Utamilla tribe. This presentation discusses these remains and examines the legal factors and legislation on remains.

The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003

The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Jezari, Arianna & Oppong, Joseph R.
Description: This paper discusses research on the geography of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Harris County, Texas from 1999-2003. Abstract: This research examines the geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas and the factors associated with areas of high prevalence. Zip code-level prevalence rates obtained from the Texas State Department of Health for 1999-2003 is the dependent variable, while education, race/ethnicity, and income taken from the 2000 Census are used as explanatory variables with Spearman's rank correlation analysis. The results suggest that race/ethnicity, level of education, and income have significant relationships with the HIV rate in Harris County Zip codes. Zip codes with a high percentage of African Americans, a high percentage of adults with an education level of eighth grade or less, and a high percentage of people with income below the poverty line, tend to have higher HIV rates.
