Share Indigenous International Repatriation: Returning Ancestral Remains Home

Event Details

 The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples affirms the rights of indigenous peoples to repatriate their human remains. Indigenous communities face challenges when their ancestral remains are held in repositories and private collections throughout the world. This panel will discuss human rights issues, logistical challenges, and opportunities for relationship building that are part of the growing international movement to repatriate indigenous ancestors from outside their sovereign borders.

Panelists will share their distinct experiences, including the Australian government's involvement and support of their indigenous repatriation program, the Chickasaw Nation's effort as a sovereign state to bring their ancestors home from an international repository, and the National Museum of the American Indian's proactive mission to repatriate ancestral remains regardless of geography and socio-political borders.
