March Anthropology News In Focus commentaries on repatriation are now posted on our Current Featured News page, free to the public throughout the month.
Since its passage in 1990, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) has prompted significant conversations on physical and intellectual property rights, identity politics, human rights and professional ethics.

Full issue content will be available soon via AnthroSource, including the commentaries and additional thematic articles from other sections. See also the 2009 AAA Photo Contest winners featured in the March issue (to be posted on AnthroSource in full color).
