Far from Home: Bringing Archaeological Collections & Tribal Ancestors Home to Alaska
Over the last century researchers from across the U.S. and Europe explored Native villages and archaeological sites across Alaska collecting artifacts from public lands. Recently, the Bureau of Land Management led an interagency effort to retrieve Native Alaskan ancestral remains and artifacts collected 70 to 110 years ago. These collections were returned to Alaska and placed in a state museum and the ancestral remains are being prepared for repatriation. Join Emily S. Palus, Deputy Division Chief, Cultural, Paleontological Resources and Tribal Consultation, Bureau of Land Management to learn more about the complexities of this case study.
