NAGPRA PROGRAM NEWS
This year so far the NAGPRA staff has gathered documentation of Haida Migration dates/patterns as well as traditional village locations. To date the staff has developed a draft Repatriation Manual, Policies and Procedures in which the Repatriation Committee has reviewed and has returned to the staff with some recommended edits, the staff will insert these edits and suggestions and will have the committee review for approval, once the committee has approved the manual, policies and procedures, the staff will bring it to the Tribal Council for review, and approval.
As the program progresses we hope to develop collaboration with Museums that may have Haida Artifacts and/or remains for possible repatriation. Once this is established the staff will develop a Tribal Database to record the information.
