Allie, I really enjoyed your post. I thought you had really good examples and a great take on where the artifacts should belong too. However, I believe that giving these artifacts to descendants wouldn’t allow the world to see these cultures. I believe that the reasons these artifacts are given to the wrong individuals is so that we can get a bigger understanding of these artifacts and their cultures. Without this being done many of the artifacts that helped us learn these cultures wouldn’t even be known.
