Carrying Our Ancestors Home

The Carrying Our Ancestors Home (COAH) community is a collaborative project working to make information about repatriation from tribal practitioners' perspective and history publically available to researchers worldwide. Our collective is made up of tribal members, practitioners, activists, researchers and academics from many places, all with experience working with reburial, repatriation, and NAGPRA.
