Read this powerful virtual issue from Museum Anthropology
In the 20 years since the passage of the 1990 Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), an astonishingly small number of contributions with “repatriation” or “reburial” in the title have been published in Museum Anthropology and its precursor, the Council for Museum Anthropology Newsletter. All are reproduced in this virtual issue of Museum Anthropology , which serves as a precursor of, and complement to, the publication of a special thematic issue of Museum Anthropology (vol. 33, no. 2) commemorating the 20th anniversary of the passage of NAGPRA.

Museum Anthropology seeks to be a leading voice for scholarly research on the collection, interpretation, and representation of the material world. Through critical articles, provocative commentaries, and thoughtful reviews, this peer-reviewed journal aspires to cultivate vibrant dialogues that reflect the global and trans-disciplinary work of museums. Situated at the intersection of practice and theory, Museum Anthropology advances our knowledge of the ways in which material objects are intertwined with living histories of cultural display, economics, socio-politics, law, memory, ethics, colonialism, conservation, and public education.
