An important note about Native American artifacts . . .
Do you have Native American artifacts in your collection? These items can pose special challenges for small organizations unfamiliar with federal regulations. Historical Perspectives can help you identify items affected by NAGPRA, the Native American Graves Protection & Repatriation Act governing the treatment, repatriation, and disposition of Native American human remains, funerary, sacred, and cultural patrimony objects, and work with you to return affected items.
Please contact us to discuss your collection needs.
