About this title


Describes the efforts of Native Americans to rebury ancestral human remains and grave offerings held by museums and historical societies, with particular emphasis on the Pawnees and their struggle to reclaim their dead.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up-The current and historical struggle by Native Americans to protect the graves of their ancestors is presented here in a work that is both lucid and compelling. The authors examine the genesis of the double standard in the treatment of Native American remains, as well as the moral and ethical problems that the legacy of this inequality brings to Americans today. The book covers Native American cultural beliefs, 19th-century "battlefield anthropology," and today's reburial movement, with a focus on the Pawnee tribe in particular. The writing is clear, concise, and interesting, and the text is illustrated with numerous full-color and black-and-white photographs. Rarely are the topics of history, ethics, and current events combined in such a readable format. This volume is a suitable resource for students of social studies, history, ethics, Native American, cross-cultural, and multicultural studies due to its high readability, excellent graphic and pictorial qualities, and discussion-sparking style and subject matter. All in all, an excellent examination of a complex topic.
