ProPublica sets Jan. 18 webinar for reporting on Native American remains; Hudetz, Brewer to speak on investigative series

This month, ProPublica launched The Repatriation Project, an investigative series that found some of the nation’s most revered institutions like the American Museum of Natural History and Harvard University, have failed to return or resisted handing back Indigenous remains and burial items long after passage of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act in 1990.

In this webinar set Jan. 18, 4-5:30 p.m. ET, reporters, including Native American Journalists Association Vice President Graham Lee Brewer and former NAJA president Mary Hudetz, will demonstrate how journalists, museum workers and others can use our groundbreaking map and search tool to see which institutions still have Native American remains. They’ll offer tips on requesting records and sensitively reporting on this issue.
