The Department of the Interior has interpreted this definition as applying to over 573 Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages that are recognized by the United States Government. The Bureau of Indian Affairs’ list of Federally recognized tribes is available at This list does not include Alaska regional or village corporations, although Alaska Native Villages may subcontract work under grants to such corporations. “Native Hawaiian organization” includes any organization that: a) serves and represents the interests of Native Hawaiians; b) has as a primary and stated purpose the provision of services to Native Hawaiians; and c) has expertise in Native Hawaiian Affairs. NAGPRA states that this shall include the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. A museum that has control of Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony and has received Federal funds. The term “Museum” includes state or local government agencies, private institutions, and institutions of higher learning that have received Federal funds. Eligible museums must have completed and provided the following documents to the National NAGPRA Program and to Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations, as appropriate: A NAGPRA Summary of the Native American unassociated funerary objects, sacred objects or objects of cultural patrimony in their possession or control by November 16, 1993, and thereafter according to timelines established by 43 CFR 10.13. A NAGPRA Inventory of Native American human remains and associated funerary objects in their possession or control by November 16, 1995 (or other deadline as stipulated by the Department of the Interior), and thereafter according to timelines established by 43 CFR 10.13. A museum that has not yet completed the initial requirements of NAGPRA (summaries and inventories), but does so prior to submitting a grant proposal, may then be eligible to receive an award.
