      Dr. Rae Gould, “NAGPRA and the Concept of ‘Institutional Will’

      Location: Blodgett Hall auditorium

      The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), passed in 1990, requires all federally funded institutions to inventory their Native collections and consult with tribes for the return of human remains, grave objects, and other culturally important items. Thirty years later, many institutions are still out of compliance with the law. Dr. Gould, a Nipmuc National Enrolled Tribal Member and Associate Director of Native American and Indigenous Studies at Brown University, will discuss the concept of “institutional will” as it relates to NAGPRA, how it is defined and experienced within the academy and other institutions, and share the importance of institutional will in relation to the tribal communities affected by this work.
