Do you know if NAGPRA applies to any of your institution’s collections?

In this session, we will discuss the basics of NAGPRA, explore the benefits of tribal consultation, and share resources for museums. You will feel more confident engaging with NAGPRA implementation and consulting with tribal partners, even if you don’t have NAGRA cultural items in your collection

History Check In: The Lost Cause, The Confederacy Most Enduring Myth

This webinar will explore the origins and effects of the Lost Cause. The term “Lost Cause” has received a great deal of media attention lately in discussions of removing Confederate monuments. But what does it mean? Who promoted it? Why? How and why does it still capture the American imagination? In a survey of the period between 1865 and the present, this webinar will examine the ways in which this “best case scenario” of the Confederacy was crafted and imparted as well as the ways in which it still resonates today.
