Native American Graves and Repatriation Act

At the moment I'm researching articles on whether the NAGRA may be a viable topic.  My ideas are to approach it by interviewing researchers to find out whether it has been a hindrance to scientific research and if so, how much.  Also I would like to research whether it has been effective in addressing cultural concerns among Native Americans regarding remains stored in museums or research labs.

  1. There seem to be a couple of related research questions in your posting: 1) NAGRA from the point of view of researchers, 2) from the point of view of Native Americans. If you do interview one or the other of these categories of possible informants, I would advise against starting with the word hindrance; rather you might focus on NAGRA and ask in general about their views or how it has influenced their research/lives. ??
