🔗Park NAGPRA Intern – 400 hours
Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program
The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) requires that museums and federal agencies return Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony to lineal descendants, Indian tribes, or Native Hawaiian organizations. Federal agencies must plan for situations where remains and items subject to NAGPRA might be excavated from federal land as well as deal with new discoveries on federal land. As a federal agency that manages public land and cares for public collections that are subject to NAGPRA, the National Park Service (NPS) must comply with this law. The Park NAGPRA Program is responsible for helping NPS units across the United States, including parks and regional offices, meet NAGPRA’s requirements.
The intern will assist with a variety of tasks related to NPS compliance with NAGPRA. As needed, duties may include assisting with updating NPS’ NAGPRA guidance according to NAGPRA’s potential revised regulations; maintaining/updating Park NAGPRA’s database; maintaining/updating Park NAGPRA’s websites; assisting with NAGPRA training sessions; reviewing NAGPRA notices for accuracy; organizing and filing NAGPRA records; and taking notes during calls/meetings. The intern will work under the supervision of the Park NAGPRA Program Manager. This position is located in Lakewood, CO, but may work 100% remotely during pandemic operations.
