Special Features- Introduces readers to current debates about the owndership and control of cultural materials and ancestral remains, and the way Indigenous people and their culture are presented to the general public.- Examinesthe role of anthropology in universities, museums, and the public domain and suggests that it depends too much on abstract theories and interpreations and needs to responds more directly to the need for reconciling the interests of rchaeologists, the public, and indigenous peoples.- Conflicts concerning indigenous peoples rights and interests make headlines worldwide, from the repatriation of bones and artifacts to territorial hunting rights.- Who owns the artifacts collected at archaeological sites today or deposited in museums in the past? Whose telling or interpretation of the indigenous people's history is legitimate?
