New Scholarship on Native Hawaiians and NAGPRA

E. Sunny Greer has published ” Na Wai Hoʻōla i Nā Iwi?  Who Will Save the Bones:  Native Hawaiians and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Actin the Asian-Pacific Law and Policy Journal.

An excerpt:

This paper will argue that although the application of the Native American Graves Protection Act (“NAGPRA”) in Hawai‘i is problematic, it is imperative that Native Hawaiians include the care of ancestral remains and cultural objects as integral components of their cultural and political assertion of sovereignty.
