Abstract

Collaborative exhibitions built by Native communities and museums often seek to reposition Native peoples as the authors and experts of their own cultures. This capstone project, done for the Museum Studies Graduate Program at the University of San Francisco, explores what measures it would take for a Native community and a small museum who houses Native cultural patrimony to come together in a collaborative effort in order to design and display an exhibit featuring the relationships between Native communities, museums, and the Native American Repatriation and Grave Protection Act (NAGPRA). Topics discussed include the role of NAGPRA, Community Relations, Repatriation, and Exhibit Design.
