LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Archaeological Society has received a $63,000 grant to document and return human remains and cultural objects to their native people.

The grant announced Wednesday was among $1.5 million awarded nationwide by the National Park Service under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. The grants were awarded to museums, Indian tribes and Alaska native villages.

National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis says more than 10,000 Native American human remains and 1 million sacred objects have been returned to tribes and native organizations under the program.

The program requires museums and federal agencies to inventory and identify Native American human remains and cultural items in their collections.
