Can’t STOP, Won’t STOP

The law requires federally funded institutions and museums to consult with descendants, federally recognized Native American tribes, and Native Hawaiian organizations to return Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony to their rightful descendant communities.
