The Arizona State Museum has just received nearly $90,000 from the National Park Service to support the museum's efforts to return artifacts, remains and other items to American Indian tribes.

Staff at the museum have been long involved in an effort to return human remains and sacred cultural items to American Indian tribes, complying with NAGPRA, or the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.
