First Central Valley NAGPRA Workshop set for Sept. 27
The Central Valley CalNAGPRA and Federal NAGPRA Workshop Series will be presented in two sessions this fall in partnership with the California State University Chancellor’s Office and CVHEC members Fresno City College and Fresno State.
The Federal Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) sets up responsibilities and opportunities related to special collections and/or teaching materials that may be found in a wide variety of library, museum, lab and classroom locations.
This workshop series will review the requirements of the California NAGPRA and the Federal NAGPRA – regulations to which all California higher education systems, including community colleges, must comply.
A virtual workshop will be presented Sept. 27 (RSVP required) 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to review the repatriation laws that impact university and college campuses and discuss campus responsibilities regarding these laws established in 1990.
An in-person conference on Oct. 30 (8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) hosted by Fresno State will present panel discussions and build connections towards positive repatriation outcomes. More details to come. (Register).
