National NAGPRA Online Databases

 

About NAGPRA DATABASES

National NAGPRA maintains several online databases designed to provide access to information on a variety of NAGPRA-related topics. All of the databases have search capabilities that allow the user to locate specific information. The databases are typically updated monthly. We understand that institutions and tribes may discover errors or matters that require updating, and we are pleased to work with them on an ongoing basis. Please contact the database administrator on how to make corrections to the databases.

  • Summaries Database. Each record contains the name of the tribe(s) receiving a copy of a summary from a museum or Federal agency. Corrections, updates, and additions to this database will be made as museums and agencies continue to verify the data that have been entered, or submit revised summaries. Updated May 2014
  • Notices of Intent to Repatriate (NIR) Database is a searchable library of published Federal Register notices pertaining to Native American unassociated funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. Updated July 28, 2014
  • Culturally Unidentifiable (CUI) Native American Inventories Database provides information about Native American human remains that have been determined to be culturally unidentifiable and has been compiled on behalf of the Review Committee pursuant to 43 CFR 10.10 (g). The database summarizes the inventory information submitted by museums and Federal agencies and is not meant to be an exact copy of their inventory data. Though an effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the data presented in this database, slight discrepancies between these and the actual museum and agency inventories may remain. Efforts to verify data are ongoing.
    The database now includes 18,041 records describing 128,355 Native American human remains and 1,107,869 associated funerary objects inventoried by 747 museums and Federal agencies. Among the human remains included here are 6,467 that have been culturally affiliated since they were first inventoried as culturally unidentifiable.
    Templates for notices pursuant to 43 CFR 10.11
    for use in preparing draft Federal Register notices as well as a template for culturally unidentifiable NAGPRA inventories are available online. View a listing of Notices of Inventory Completion using the 10.11 CUI rule. Corrections, updates, and additions to this database will be made as museums and agencies continue to verify the data that have been entered, or submit revised inventories.
    Updated July 2014
  • Culturally Affiliated (CA) Native American Inventories Database. This database represents an extensive tool of reference for anyone wishing to have a snapshot on the current status of many of the Native American human remains that have been culturally affiliated as a result of consultation with tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations. All individuals on this database should be represented in a Notice of Inventory Completion.
    The database summarizes the inventory information submitted by museums and Federal agencies and is not meant to be an exact copy of their inventory data. Though an effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the data presented in this database, slight discrepancies between these and the actual museum and agency inventories may remain. The database includes 6,121 records and accounts for 58,292 Native American human remains and 1,267,584 associated funerary objects inventoried by 569 museums and Federal agencies.
    A template for culturally affiliated NAGPRA inventories is available online, and can be used for a new inventory or an amended inventory. Corrections, updates, and additions to this database will be made as museums and agencies continue to verify the data that have been entered, or submit revised inventories. Updated July 2014
