Additional Resources

The following links to online resources are provided for your convenience. However, we look forward to working directly with you to answer any questions you may have and coordinating consultation!

The National NAGPRA website contains all the information on the law, frequently asked questions, training videos, and grant applications. Autry Museum inventories, summaries, and notices can also be found there. Please contact us at nagpra@theautry.org for more detailed information on Autry NAGPRA compliance efforts. 

The California Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (CalNAGPRA) was passed by the California legislature in 2001. The law applies to all state agencies and museums that receive state funds.   

The Association of American Indian Affairs  played an integral part in the enactment of NAGPRA in 1990. Their website provides a synopsis of some of the key provisions of the law. 

Indigenous Foundations is an information resource website on key topics relating to the histories, politics, and cultures of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada, and includes information about Indigenous struggles globally. It was developed to support students, instructors, researchers, and the broader public with a place to begin exploring topics that relate to Aboriginal peoples. The website includes a description of the development and adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

The School of Advanced Research’s Guidelines for Collaboration was developed over a three-year period of collaboration between Native and non-Native museum professionals, cultural leaders, and artists. The guidelines are intended as a resource for museums and communities that are planning and carrying out collaborative work.

Carrying Our Ancestors Home was created by a group of tribal practitioners, tribal members, museum professionals, and academics. This website is an educational tool for people seeking to understand the process and diversity of returning ancestral remains and cultural items, as well as the impact of repatriation on Indigenous communities around the world.
