The University of California Berkeley has the largest number of unreturned human remains of Native Americans, in violation of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.

Further, recent notices in the Federal Register reveal that grave robbing resulted in large numbers of Arikara, Mandan, and Hidatsa, Miwok, Pueblo, Shawnee, Arapaho, Siletz, and others being harbored for decades by museums across the United States.

UC Berkeley has Native remains from every county in Arizona and Utah where the Navajo Nation is located.

The Defense Department has the remains of four Native Americans taken from the land of the Naval Airbase in Fallon, Nevada. It is the military base that was expanded by Congress and President Biden in the defense spending bill for 2023.

It is the expansion that Paiute Journalist Myron Dewey died trying to halt. On the day before his death, Dewey live-streamed at the bombing range, warning of the continued genocide from the Navy Seals bombing on sacred land. At the same time, the Nevada Congressional delegation pushed for expansion.
