The Impact of NAGPRA on Anthropology, Archaeology, and Cultural Resource Management

Since the passage of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) in 1990, substantial changes have occured in the way that anthropologists, archaeologists, and cultural resource management professionals have viewed and interacted with the indigenous peoples of North America. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Pacific Northwest. The Mid-Columbia River region of the southern Plateau provides numerous examples of how these relationships have evolved, and in particular, how they are impacting the development of anthropology, archaeology, and cultural resource management in the Northwest.

Darby Stapp, along with Michael Burney, is the author of Tribal Cultural Resource Management: The Full Circle to Stewardship published in 2002 by Altmira Press.

Event is Free and Open to the Public
