The Council for WV Archaeology and the WV Archeological Society are holding
a NAGPRA workshop in Charleston, WV on Saturday, June 26. The workshop is
for anyone who might be interested in the law and the changes that have
taken place since its passage in 1990. There will also be talks about
determining cultural affiliation in areas like West Virginia where the early
native population has been determined "culturally unidentifiable." There
will be participation by the NPS and the National NAGPRA program, as well as
speakers from other states who will describe their experiences with the law.
A preliminary program schedule is attached.
The program will begin on Saturday at 8:00 am with registration. The
registration fee is $15. A registration form is attached for those of you
who would like to register in advance. The meeting will be held at the
Holiday Inn Charleston House at 600 Kanawha Boulevard, East, in downtown
Charleston. Their toll-free number is 1 (800) 315-2621. Rooms are available
at the hotel for $89 per night at the host hotel, and several other hotels
are within walking distance. If you reserve a room at the Charleston House,
tell them you are coming to the NAGPRA workshop sponsored by the WVAS to get
the discounted rate. A map to the hotel is below.
