Museums and Federal agencies must consult with known Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations in compiling a NAGPRA inventory and when responding to claims and interests of potential claimants to items in the NAGPRA summary.
Consultation should lead to determining control,
treatment and disposition of NAGPRA related human remains and objects.
The consultation process is outlined in 43 CFR 1 0. 5, 1 0. 8(a), 1 0. 9(b) and 1 0. 1 1. Documentation.
The term documentation refers to data that will lead to determining the geographical origin, cultural affiliation, and basic facts surrounding the acquisition of Native American human remains and cultural items to further the NAGPRA process.
