Event description

Description

Repatriation of Native American cultural items involves complex issues of religion, property law, provenance, and indigenous rights. 3D digital replication of objects is emerging as an approach that allows museums and tribes to manage their sometimes conflicting interests and work together toward both educational and ceremonial goals. Hollinger (Tribal Liason, Repatriation Office, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History) will describe some of the Smithsonian’s recent collaborations with tribes on 3D replication projects.

ASL Interpretation will be provided. If you have any accessibility questions or concerns, please email us.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.

Cosponsored by Penn Museum and the Price Lab for Digital Humanities.
