February 6, 2014 - The Ingredients of a Successful NAGPRA Grant Application
Section 10 of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to make grants to museums, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to assist the process leading to repatriation/disposition of Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. Management of the Secretary's responsibilities for NAGPRA grants is carried out by the National NAGPRA Program. Two types of grants are offered -- Consultation/Documentation grants and Repatriation grants. Consultation/Documentation grants are project-based grants that support the efforts of museums, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to consult on and document human remains and cultural items. These grants are competitive. Repatriation grants are noncompetitive awards that defray costs associated with the transfer of possession of human remains and cultural items (such as packaging, transportation, contamination removal, reburial, or storage). In this webinar, you will learn about NAGPRA grants, review the FY 2014 Consultation/Documentation grant application, identify fundable projects, and hear the perspectives of Grants Panel reviewers and a veteran successful grant writer on crafting a successful NAGPRA grant application.

Registration information will be posted at least one month prior to scheduled webinar.

Overview provided by Mariah Soriano, Database Coordinator, and Maya P. Solis, NCPE Intern.

July 25, 2012 - State Protocols and NAGPRA
Discoveries of Native American human remains and other NAGPRA cultural items on state and private land are governed by state law. However, if the state takes possession or control of these discoveries pursuant to state law, these items are considered new collections, subject to Sections 5, 6, and 7 of NAGPRA. These items are also subject to 43 CFR 10.13, the section of the regulations that address the continuing duty to comply with NAGPRA. To navigate the intersection of state and Federal law, states may develop NAGPRA protocols to tailor the process for that state. Proposed state protocols may be presented to the NAGPRA Review Committee for their advice and recommendations, which are forwarded to the Secretary of Interior. A state protocol approved by the Secretary of Interior clarifies the process of complying with both state and Federal law for purposes of NAGPRA. To date, only Colorado and Iowa have NAGPRA state protocols. It may be advantageous for other states to develop these as well. In this webinar the advantages, development, approval, and implementation of state protocols will be discussed. Click here to start recorded webinar.

Presenters: Bridget Ambler of History Colorado worked on the Colorado NAGPRA Protocol. Sheila Goff of History Colorado is responsible for implementing the Colorado NAGPRA Protocol. Carla Mattix, attorney-advisor in the Department of the Interior, advises the NAGPRA Review Committee, and reviews the protocols submitted to the Secretary of Interior.

April 12, 2012 – Ask Your NAGPRA Questions: An Open Forum
Do you have a specific question you would like to ask National NAGPRA Program staff or legal counsel?  Do you seek clarification of a particular NAGPRA issue?

Registration deadline is April 9.

March 22, 2012 -- What Difference Does It Make?: NAGPRA Inventories, Summaries, and Federal Register Notices
Under NAGPRA, Federal agencies and museums must complete inventories and summaries for the Native American human remains, funerary objects, scared objects, and objects of cultural patrimony under their control, and must submit these documents to Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, as appropriate, as well as to the National NAGPRA Program. Inventories and summaries form the basis for Notices of Inventory Completion and Notices of Intent to Repatriate Cultural Items. Publication of notices in the Federal Register, in turn, satisfies the process required in order for the disposition of such human remains and cultural items to occur. Inventories and summaries, thus, are directly linked to notices. Yet, while they share similar content, inventories and summaries are neither identical to nor interchangeable with notices. In this webinar, we will examine the NAGPRA inventory -- its form and purpose -- and demonstrate how to navigate the National NAGPRA Program's Inventory Database. Then, with a thorough understanding of inventories, we will examine the notice format, demonstrate how to prepare a conforming notice from an inventory, and explain the process of getting a notice to publication in the Federal Register. Similarly, we will spend some time looking at the connections between NAGPRA summaries and Notices of Intent to Repatriate. This webinar is especially targeted at NAGPRA practitioners whose responsibilities include the completion of inventories and summaries, and Federal Register notices. Time will be allocated for discussion and questions; however, participants are encouraged to send their questions at the time they register for the webinar.

Presenters: Mariah Soriano, Database and Website Coordinator, National NAGPRA Program; and Alayna Rasile, Contractor, National NAGPRA Program

February 2, 2012 -- Complying with Section 3 of NAGPRA on Tribal Land

Section 3 of NAGPRA (25 U.S.C. § 3002) addresses the disposition of human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony found on Federal and tribal lands after November 16, 1990. If discovered on tribal land, the excavation or removal of human remains and cultural items requires the consent of the Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization on whose tribal land the discovery is made, and ownership or control of the remains and cultural items is in the tribe or NHO (where a lineal descendant of human remains and associated funerary objects cannot be ascertained). What is tribal land under NAGPRA? How does the excavating party know with whom to consult? What is the NAGPRA compliance process? These questions and more will be the focus of this webinar. Time will be allocated for discussion and questions, however, participants are encouraged to send in any questions they have when they register.

Presenters: Marvin Keller, Archaeologist/FPO/ NEPA Coordinator, IA-DECRM, Indian Affairs; Annie Pardo, Museum Program Manager/National Curator/NAGPRA Coordinator, Indian Affairs; and Stephen Simpson, Senior Attorney, Office of the Solicitor, Division of Indian Affairs, Department of the Interior

December 6, 2011 -- Applying for a FY 2012 NAGPRA Grant
Section 10 of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to make grants to museums, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations for the purposes of assisting in consultation, documentation, and repatriation of Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. The National NAGPRA Program offers two types of grants -- Consultation/Documentation grants and Repatriation grants. Consultation/Documentation grants are project-based grants that support the efforts of museums, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to consult on and document human remains and cultural items. These grants are competitive; the maximum allowable award is $90,000. Repatriation grants are non-competitive awards for up to $15,000. These awards defray costs associated with the packaging, transportation, contamination removal, reburial, and/or storage of human remains and/or cultural items. In this webinar you will learn more about the NAGPRA Grants program, review the FY 2012 Consultation/Documentation grant application, and find out about new resources available on the NAGPRA Program’s website to assist you in preparing your grant request.

September 15, 2011 -- Coordinating Compliance with Section 3 of NAGPRA and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act
Since November 16, 1990, whenever a project carried out, approved, or funded by a Federal agency is to occur on Federal land or tribal land, both Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA, 16 U.S.C. 470f) and Section 3 of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3002) are implicated. Under NHPA Section 106, if the project has the potential to affect historic properties on tribal land, or historic properties of significance to one or more Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations on Federal land, then prior to beginning the project, the Federal agency must consult with officials of the appropriate Native Hawaiian organization(s) or federally recognized Indian tribe(s) on measures to avoid or reduce harm to the historic properties in the area of potential effect. Successful completion of Section 106 review, though, is no guarantee that the project may proceed uninterrupted, for Section 3 of NAGPRA will temporarily halt the project if Native American human remains or other cultural items are discovered and no plan is in place that addresses their excavation or removal, and disposition. Instead of putting such a project at risk of being suspended for lack of a plan to address its NAGPRA responsibilities, one course of action for the Federal agency would be to conduct consultation with (or, in the case of tribal lands, obtain the consent of) the appropriate Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization on a contingency plan ("Plan of Action") to address the excavation or removal, and disposition of any NAGPRA cultural items discovered during the project. In this webinar, the presenters will briefly review NHPA Section 106 and NAGPRA Section 3 responsibilities; explain why Federal agencies might wish to integrate NAGPRA Section 3 contingency planning in their NHPA Section 106 review; and demonstrate how, as a practical matter, this work may be accomplished.

Presenters: Valerie Hauser, Director, Office of Native American Affairs, Advisory Council on Historic Preservation; and Chuck Smythe, Ethnography Program Manager, Northeast Region, National Park Service

October 28, 2010 - International Repatriation: Points of Return for Native American Ancestors and Cultural Items Situated Outside of the United States
In recent years, Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations have been actively pursuing the repatriation of ancestors and cultural items situated in foreign repositories. In some cases, NAGPRA has been used to effect their return, but most often, consultation and negotiation were conducted outside the scope of NAGPRA. This webinar has three parts. In the first segment, participants will develop an understanding of the extent to which NAGPRA applies to human remains and cultural items in the physical custody of a foreign repository. Next, they will hear first-hand from Indian tribe and Native Hawaiian organization practitioners about their repatriation work with foreign institutions. These presenters will provide insights into best practices in international repatriation learned during the course of their work. Topics to be covered during this segment will include: locating human remains and cultural items in foreign repositories; cultivating working relationships with foreign institutions; and negotiating the terms and logistics of repatriation across international borders. The last segment will be devoted to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The Declaration and its relevance for international repatriation will be discussed, and participants will learn about the current review by the United States of its position on the Declaration, and the role that they can play in that review.
