This DVD explores the significant events that led to the passage of NAGPRA, and highlights NAGPRA's significance for Native Americans, museums and the scientific community today.

The Development of NAGPRA Narrated by Jack Trope, Executive Director, Association on American Indian Affairs. On November 16, 1990, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) became law. NAGPRA was the culmination of a dialogue begun by Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, and national museum organizations and scientific organizations to address the rights of native people to control the disposition of their ancestors' remains and funerary objects, and to possess both the objects they need for the practice of traditional religions and those inalienable objects having ongoing importance central to their groups or culture. Since its passage, NAGPRA has fundamentally and positively affected relationships among Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations, the museum and scientific communities, and the public at large. This DVD explores the significant events that led to the passage of NAGPRA, and highlights NAGPRA's significance for Native Americans, museums and the scientific community today.
