Summary "The Makah Indians of Washington State - briefly in the national spotlight when they resumed their ancient whaling traditions in 1999 - have begun a process that will eventually lead to the repatriation of objects held by museums and federal agencies nationwide. Drawing Back Culture describes the early stages of the tribe's implementation of what some consider to be the most important piece of cultural policy legislation in the history of the United States: the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA)."--Jacket
