In accordance with the procedure for dealing with repatriation claims set out in the University's Policy on Human Remains Held by the University of Oxford's Museums, the Visitors of the Pitt Rivers Museum have considered a claim from the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation for the repatriation of certain human remains held in the Pitt Rivers Museum.

Any comments received are to be considered by Council in reaching a final decision on the recommendation submitted by the governing body of the museum.

The recommendation of the Visitors of the Pitt Rivers Museum will be considered by Council at its meeting on 20 May.
