Grants for repatriation of Native American human remains are available from the Department of the Interior. Recently a report was posted to the National Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act website (http://www.nps.gov/nagpra/INDEX.HTM) indicating Native American human remains listed on culturally affiliated inventories and not in notices. Those individuals are immediately available to be in notices. Also, there are published notices of individuals who have not been requested. The tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations listed in a notice are eligible to request repatriation. The costs of transfer can be funded by a NAGPRA grant. If interested please contact:NAGPRA_grants@nps.gov.
