The National NAGPRA Program provides support to museums, Federal agencies, tribes, and Hawaiian organizations regarding the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The Act was enacted on November 16, 1990 to address the rights of lineal descendents, Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to Native American cultural items, including human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. The National NAGPRA Program carries out the Secretary of the Interior's responsibilities under the Act, including publishing notices for museums and Federal Agencies in the Federal Register, creating and maintaining database, making grants to assist museums, Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations in fulfilling NAGPRA, assessing civil penalties for noncompliance, providing staff support to the NAGPRA Review Committee and for the Annual Report to Congress, providing technical assistance and training, and promulgating implementing regulations.
