The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Committee will be holding three meetings to discuss matters relating to the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA).

Included on the agenda for the May 14, 2010 meeting are presentations to the Review
Committee by Indian tribes, museums, and federal agencies on both the positive experiences and the barriers encountered with NAGPRA compliance.  The June 11th meeting will focus on discussion of the committee’s draft report to Congress for 2010.  Both of these meetings are open to the public and will be teleconferenced.  A third meeting will be held from November 17-19, 2010 in Washington, DC.

For the May 14 meeting, the Review Committee is soliciting presentations by Indian tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, museums, and federal agencies on both the positive experiences and the barriers encountered with NAGPRA compliance.  The deadline for submitting presentations on this topic is April 9, 2010.  Electronic submissions are preferred, and are to be sent to: David_Tarler@nps.gov.
