Show your commitment to human rights and equality through a sponsorship of the 7th Annual Repatriation Conference. All sponsorship dollars will go to providing SCHOLARSHIPS for Tribal practitioners and staff from smaller museums.
Sponsoring this Conference demonstrates your investment in Indigenous rights and puts your company or organization before Tribal Nations, museums, government, and academia.
The Conference will be an ALL VIRTUAL Community Conference, which will allow all levels of sponsorship to have their own virtual exhibitor space to provide video, links, narrative description and the ability to set up appointments with Conference participants. In addition, all registered participants will be able to access the portal 30 days prior to the Conference, and 3 months after the Conference to ends to access information and video content.
Last year the Association had 730 registered participants from Indian Country, federal and state government agencies, museums, academia, students, dealers and collectors!

Repatriation is not just the act of returning Ancestors, their burial belongings, and sacred and cultural patrimony. Repatriation requires all parties involved – institutions, collectors, dealers, federal agencies, Tribal governments, attorneys, academics – to be truth tellers and healers. The 7th Annual Repatriation Conference will require us to acknowledge our accountability for the past and move together collectively, committed to a future where diverse Native American cultures and values are lived, protected and respected.
The Conference theme – Accountable to Our Past, Committed to Our Future – will be realized through interactive, virtual panels led by experts from diverse backgrounds within Tribal governments including Tribal repatriation practitioners and spiritual leaders, museums, academia, dealers and auctions, federal agencies, foreign museums, and legal counsel. These experts and partners will share examples and case studies where there has been a reckoning of history, and teach us about the process – using NAGPRA or other laws, or through consensual actions and best practices.
The Conference will provide connection, ceremony, and healing for participants, while also providing education and training for everyone committed to healing the past. Participants will come together for a variety of relevant panel discussions, breakout sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities to unite all participants in one mind in order to envision a world where diverse Native American cultures and values are lived, protected, and respected.
