NAGPRA's Politics of Recognition: Repatriation Struggles of a Terminated Tribe

As tribal historic preservation officer for the federally unrecognized Brothertown Indian Nation, the author uses their own personal experience of attempting repatriation of a pipe under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act to discuss the process to prove connection, justify legal status according to federal criteria, and how their recognition status was exploited by the museum community.
