DescriptionThe Act, passed in 1990, provides a process for museums and Federal agencies to return certain Native American cultural items to lineal descendants, culturally affiliated Indian tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations. These items include human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony. Grants are awarded to Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages and corporations, Native Hawaiian organizations, and museums for financial assistance in carrying out projects associated with the Act’s compliance. The Act provides two kinds of grants: consultation/documentation grants and repatriation grants. Consultation/documentation grants are awarded competitively once per fiscal year. Repatriation grants are awarded on a continuing basis throughout each fiscal year. Proposals are accepted Oct. 1 through June 30.
