Landmark legislation protecting Native American cultural items turns 30.

The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act requires museums and any institution that receives federal funds to return items of tribal cultural significance taken from federal land. The legislation was the result of decades of work by Native experts and activists who were fighting the theft of Native items over the years.

Native America Calling will talk with the people who were instrumental in getting the legislation passed as well as tribal historic preservation officers who rely on it to protect their cultural patrimony.

Listen to Native America Calling LIVE every day at 1pm Eastern.
