Culturally Affiliated Native American Inventories Database
About the Database
The Culturally Affiliated Native American Inventories Database is a transmission for public use of data from museums and Federal agencies that have NAGPRA compliance obligations. Many of the Native American human remains described here have been culturally affiliated as a result of consultation with tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations. All individuals on this database should be represented in a Notice of Inventory Completion. The tribe or tribes designated as eligible to receive the human remains in each inventory are noted in the notes section of the record.
Each record contains the name of the museum or Federal agency in possession or control of the human remains; the state, county, and site, if known, from which the human remains were removed; the collection identification number if given; the minimum number of individuals (MNI); and the number of associated funerary objects (AFO). The notes section also includes brief collection histories, available age and culture or early group information, a list of associated funerary objects, if present, date Notice of Inventory Completion published in the Federal Register, repatriation date if known, and last updated.
The database is offered to support consultation efforts and provide information that may assist in the cultural affiliation of Native American human remains listed on the database of culturally unidentifiable Native American human remains.
