Public Comments Sought on NAGPRA Reporting Requirements

The National Park Service is currently accepting public input on reporting requirements for museums under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.  The law requires museums to compile certain information regarding Native American cultural items in their possession.

The government is interested in comments regarding ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents and ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.

Comments will be accepted through 19 September 2012.  More information is available at
