This course is a research cluster exploring repatriation law and its impact on indigenous communities in the United States. Since its passage in 1990, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) has provided Native American tribes with an important means for reclaiming human remains and cultural items from federally-funded institutions. In advance of the Indian Legal Program’s upcoming symposium commemorating NAGPRA’s 30th anniversary, students will research how NAGPRA currently works for tribes and institutions on the ground, and will examine current developments in repatriation law that aim to improve on, and in some cases move beyond NAGPRA’s frameworks.
