OMA 2020 Spring Workshops

Moving Forward with NAGPRA

In 2020, OMA offers two Spring Workshops!
  • 3-hour overview workshop at the Oregon Heritage Conference
  • 5-hour in-depth workshop at the High Desert Museum

This workshop focuses on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) enacted in 1990. The law’s precise impact on museums will be examined.  Panel members with specialized NAGPRA knowledge will share specific information—compliance requirements, collection evaluation, outreach to Native tribes—and identify available tools and resources illuminating the intricacies of the repatriation process. Participants will come away with a better understanding of NAGPRA and how you can put these tools to use in your organization.

Details coming soon!
