  • Guided by the notion that posterity is now, this is a call to take seriously the experiences of museum staff
    working in collaboration and consultation with Native peoples and to reorient the purpose of the museum
    to the values embedded in these interactions. Namely, this statement recognizes that heritage work in
    museum collections is not only about cultural identity and the past, but more often it is oriented toward the
    present and future of Indigenous communities to benefit their health and well-being. [NAGPRA, tribal
    consultation, collaboration, museum collections]
