Community Connections

Beyond Our Walls

The Peabody Museum partners with other Harvard entities, scholars, local and regional groups, and internationally to illuminate the cultural diversity of our world, ancient and contemporary. We strive to provide a place and context for meeting, learning, and intellectual exchange among our many  communities.

The Native American Graves and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) and engagement with contemporary Native American communities continues to be an important part of the Museum's research work.
