The Deafening Silence: NAGPRA, Repatriation, and the Pages of Museum Anthropology,

Published: 03 May 2010

Edited By: Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh and Stephen E. Nash


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.
