Cul­tural re­dress

The Simple Things - - LIVING -

Canada has tabled a bill to help in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties re­claim ob­jects of cul­tural her­itage. Many items that were plun­dered dur­ing the colo­nial era sit in mu­se­ums and gal­leries around the world. Though the bill has broad sup­port, crit­ics ar­gue that it could de­ter mu­se­ums and gal­leries from buy­ing in­dige­nous cul­tural items for fear of hav­ing to re­turn them.
