NAGPRA Advisory Committee

UC Davis NAGPRA Advisory Committee

In 2011, the UC Davis NAGPRA Advisory Committee was created to seek broad input on the implementation of NAGPRA, including the then newly promulgated disposition of culturally unidentifiable human remains regulations (43 CFR 10.11). The committee includes representatives from multiple academic disciplines, faculty, staff, and students as well as members of off-campus Native American communities.

Today, the committee is charged with providing the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor recommendations on policy and procedures, decisions regarding cultural affiliation or dispositions, and overall implementation of NAGPRA. 

In September 2018, California passed legislation that outlines the composition of the UC and UC campus committees. UC Davis will reconstitute the NAGPRA Advisory Committee to meet the new requirements.
