In particular, NATHPO is continuing to work through implications of the sections regarding excavations and discoveries on Tribal lands and duty of care. We invite and encourage you to come share your thoughts with us and the community of THPOs. We are also getting requests from federal agency staff for help understanding it all, and we want to make sure that we take this opportunity to elevate your perspectives in any guidance!

NATHPO's Repatriation Advisor, Dr. Tim McKeown will be on-hand to give his current take on the new regulations, answer questions, and collect questions we need answered and feedback we need to share.

This webinar is intended for THPOs and Tribal representatives and staff only. We look forward to engaging our entire audience in future discussions on this topic.

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) Executive Council will gather February 12-15 in Washington, DC for their annual meeting. If members of your Tribe's leadership are planning to attend, it would be helpful for our advocacy to know. Please share with us by emailing We would love to be able to connect with as many Tribal Leaders as possible while they're in Washington and make sure they know how they can best support their THPOs as they meet with Members of Congress and Executive Branch officials.
