Welcome to Puvungna!

Welcome to the Repatriation Office Webpage
The National Museum of Natural History established its Repatriation Office in the Department of Anthropology in the fall of 1991 to carry out the repatriation provisions of the National Museum of the American Indian Act (NMAI Act). Repatriation at the Museum is a collaborative process in which Museum staff work with tribal representatives to determine the disposition of human remains and cultural objects under the law. Cooperative relations founded upon the repatriation effort promise to strengthen the Native voice and perspective at the Smithsonian, an institution historically committed to understanding and interpreting Native cultures of the Americas and the world.
