Abstract : The U.S. Army Environmental Center tasked the Mandatory Center of Expertise for the Curation and Management of Archaeological Collection (MCX) with the job of assisting the Army with complying with the Native American Graves protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), P.L.lOl-601. The MCX was asked to locate and assess archaeological collections derived from Army lands, to identify the Native American or Native Hawaiian organizations culturally affiliated with the collections, and to draft Section 6 Summary letters for each installation. A two-stage process was used to identify, locate, and assess the contents of the collections, consisting of archival research and telephone interviews with the repository personnel This report conveys the results of the collection research completed for compliance with Section 6 of NAGPRA.
