Suppose you stumbled upon an artifact from an Indigenous Native American people in your backyard. Do you own it? Or do the heirs of those who produced it? Or does it belong in a museum for all to see? In a series of controversial case studies we will examine what it means to ?own? the past, how it should be protected and preserved, and what role museums have had?-and should have?in safeguarding that past.
