UC Davis Campus Policy

UC Davis adopted a campus-wide policy, Curation and Repatriation of Native American Human Remains and Cultural Items, in July 2017. The campus policy was developed in consultation with Native American tribes as well as the UC Davis NAGPRA Advisory Committee.

The campus policy was created to provide a transparent process and address areas where NAGPRA and the UC System-wide Policy provide discretion. 

UC Systemwide Policy

The UC Office of the President issued an Interim Policy for the Native American Cultural Affiliation and Repatriation Policy in July 2020. The policy is issued as interim in order to allow tribes that have not been able to review the policy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The University will issue a final updated policy by the end of the year. 

Comments and requests for consultation with the Office of the President can be submitted through this website.
