Event Description
This outstanding documentary relates the powerful history of the American Indian struggle for control of their ancestral remains. In 1990, after a long struggle between Indian rights groups and the scientific establishment, the Native American Graves Repatriation and Protection Act (NAGPRA) returned to Indian people the right to control the remains of their ancestors. (56 mintues, 2002)

Introduction by Chris Howell, Executive Director, Kansas Native American Affairs Office. In conjunction with Passages: Persistent Visions of a Native Place.
