Kodiak Alutiiq Sugpiaq Repatriation Commission
The Alutiiq Museum works with the Kodiak Alutiiq Sugpiaq Repatriation Commission to establish adn implement repatriation policy for the Kodiak region, compile information on Alutiiq materials in US museums, assist with repatriation claims, and support the return of repatriated items and ancestral remains.
Make A Repatriation Claim
Like all American museums that receive federal grants, the Alutiiq Museum must notify Native communities of the human remains and repatriateable objects in its care. Working with the National Park Service NAGPRA Program, we published our inventories of these materials in the federal register in 2007. Alutiiq tribes wishing to claim any of these materials may contact the museum for assistance. A sample claim letter appears below.
