In keeping with NAGPRA and the values of our institution, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is fully committed to the repatriation of our Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian collections. In this process, it is our priority to engage in consultation with tribal communities and lineal descendants.
NAGPRA Staff and Advisory Committee
NAGPRA efforts at Illinois are being led by Krystiana Krupa, the NAGPRA Program Officer, and Jenny Davis, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Chancellor’s Fellow of Indigenous Research and Ethics. Their activities will be informed by a NAGPRA Policies and Procedures Committee. Initially, committee members will develop policies and procedures for campus-wide NAGPRA compliance. Longer-term, they will serve as an advisory board to campus NAGPRA compliance efforts and the NAGPRA Program Officer.
