Repatriation Conference Evaluation Report

On October 26–28, 2020, the University of Denver Museum of Anthropology co-hosted the 6th Annual Repatriation Conference with the Association on American Indian Affairs. Following the conference, we distributed an evaluation survey to better understand everyone’s experience. I wanted to share a few excerpts from the results with you.

70% of attendees rated the conference very highly. The conference was particularly successful in exposing attendees to new ideas. Attendees reported gaining new ideas and new skills.

47% of the 730 registered attendees received a scholarship. 72% of respondents who received a scholarship said they would not have been able to attend the conference without a scholarship.

Because of the pandemic, the 6th Annual Repatriation Conference was entirely virtual, making it extremely accessible to a large number of attendees. Technology was not a problem for most attendees and those who had some issues were generally able to work through them on their own. Moving forward, respondents are interested in having some virtual element to the conference.

Most important to the NAGPRA Community of Practice, the conference was successful in helping attendees expand their professional network and creating a sense of community.
