Premier Christy Clark announces program to repatriate Aboriginal items

Premier Christy Clark has announced a new program to identify and return aboriginal items of cultural significance to BC from museums and private collections around the world.

Clark made the announcement on National Aboriginal Day, saying it’s time aboriginal artwork, ceremonial regalia and ancestral remains taken out of the province over hundreds of years were returned.

She says she’ll ask US President Barack Obama to extend to BC rights under the Native American Grave Protection Act that makes it law to return human remains.
The Royal BC Museum says it will work with the province and First Nations to identify items and return them or offer to store them on a loan only basis.
