Deadline Approaching to Comment on NAGPRA Review

The Department of the Interior is currently leading a discretionary review of the current Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) regulations.  The purpose of the review is to address two questions: (1) Based on 15 years of use, do the rules currently codified at 43 C.F.R. Part 10 need any amendments, such as corrections, clarifications, or refinements?; and (2) If the answer is ‘yes,’ then how should the rules be amended?

The deadline to submit comments is 1 July 2011.  Comments should be sent to David Tarler at

Also of note, the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs will be holding an oversight hearing on NAGPRA on 16 July 2011 at 2:15 pm.
