U.S. archeologists work to return Alaska Native remains and artifacts

The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) is a federal law that requires museums and federal agencies to return human remains and other cultural items to their descendants. That means it’s up to people like U.S. Fish & Wildlife archeologist Debbie Corbett to locate all of the remains that were taken from federal lands in Alaska, identify who they belong to and try to get them home.
