Repatriation Reader, Who Owns American Indian Remains? contains 16 previously published essays about the controversial issue of repatriating American Indian remains and sacred objects. The text reveals the various sides in the debate regarding ownership of Native American and First Nations artifacts and remains obtained through archaeological digs and grave looting. Archaeologists, legal advisors, and Native American scholars each present their viewpoints on the topics that range from the ethical, political, legal, cultural, to the scholarly. Unfortunately the spiritual aspect of the debate is overlooked. The essays cover the recent finding of Kennewick Man, the basis of physical anthropology and reasons why human remains are studied, the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, the issue surrounding reburial of human remains, and cases studies involving the Zuni, Pawnee, and Kwakiutl/Kwakwaka'wakw tribes and repatriation. The appendix contains the text of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act passed by the United States government in 1990. Anyone interested in the fields of anthropology, archaeology, museum studies, and Native Studies will find this text to be a valuable source book for the current debate over repatriation.
