Wow, that example about the Alaska Native artifacts is so close to home. I feel like that makes sense. Especially because the Alaska Native culture is still prominent and is so deeply valued by the people. Allowing those artifacts to go to the tribe seems completely fair to me! Cultural context and ties really help us to better understand the past, so removing those artifact from their proper place within culture could diminish their value.
