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.
