Kevin Gover, director of the National Museum of the American Indian, talked about the 1989 National Museum of the American Indian Act and the mission of the museum. The law established the museum on the National Mall as part of the Smithsonian Institution, and encouraged the Smithsonian to return any Native American human remains and funerary objects to federally recognized Indian tribes. Mr. Gover also read remarks by the founding director of the museum, W. Richard West, who was unable to speak as scheduled that day due to illness.

This was the opening address of “Going Home: 25 Years of Repatriation Under the NMAI Act,” a day-long symposium to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the 1989 National Museum of the American Indian Act. close
