A Guide to International Repatriation: starting an initiative in your community

“The Association on American Indian Affairs has composed the following International Repatriation Guide to assist communities seeking to start their own international repatriation efforts. 


Because international repatriations have often been long, difficult, emotionally trying and expensive endeavors, AAIA is attempting to respond with several initiatives, including this one, to assist Native communities. Our aspirational goals include continuing to research international collections to provide information to Native communities, to assist with the international repatriation process when requested, and to make inroads toward addressing this human rights issue nationally and internationally, as long as we are able.” (p.5)
