Brown Bag Lecture
An Historic Repatriation: The Return of Native American Baskets in California
Dr. Jeffrey Fentress, San Francisco State University, speaks. In 2012, San Francisco State University repatriated Native American baskets to the federally recognized Santa Rosa Rancheria Tachi Yokut Tribe and to the non-federally recognized Tubatulabals of Kern Valley under the Native American Graves Repatriation Act (NAPGRA). This occasion was the first time baskets had been repatriated to an Indian Tribe in California, and the first time in the United States that a basket was repatriated to a non-federal Indian group. The research and consultation process leading to the repatriation is described in this talk, with photos and video of the celebration marking the return of the baskets to the tribes. Sponsored by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center. Free admission.
