Nancy N. Odegaard – “Our Human Heritage: A conservators participation with Kennewick, poisons, and repatriation “

November 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

NAGPRA provides a process for museum and federal agencies to return certain Native American cultural items.  Nancy Odegaard has been involved with the repatriation process at the Arizona State Museum since the law was enacted.  She was also entrusted with the remains known as the Kennewick Man, the remains known as Lucy, and was influential in changing the requirements of NAGPRA to insure that collecting institutions report on the pesticide history of the collection upon return to lineal descendants and culturally affiliated Indian tribes and native Hawaiians.  She will share her observations as well as the comments and questions she is often asked when making presentations on these sensitive topics.
