Customized NAGPRA Training


The National NAGPRA program is committed to supporting the NAGPRA implementation efforts of tribes, museums, and agencies. In addition to general NAGPRA training, we will provide workshops that are customized to your organization's needs, and designed to address those aspects of NAGPRA that your organization deals with most often. Examples of course topics include:

  • discovery and excavation provisions of NAGPRA;
  • the NAGPRA claims process;
  • understanding NAGPRA in relationship to state burial laws;
  • inventories and summaries;
  • NAGPRA grant writing.

Workshops are taught by National NAGPRA program staff, and can be offered as stand-alone courses or as part of a more comprehensive training presentation. The host organization pays for National NAGPRA staff travel costs.

For additional information on a customized NAGPRA workshop, please contact Dr. Sherry Hutt at 202-354-1479, or by e-mail at
