Repatriating Tribal Objects in the Digital Age
3D Replication at the Smithsonian
Tribal Liason, Repatriation Office, Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History
Repatriation of Native American cultural items involves complex issues of religion, property law, provenance, and indigenous rights. 3D digital replication of objects is emerging as an approach that allows museums and tribes to manage their sometimes conflicting interests and work together toward both educational and ceremonial goals. Hollinger will describe some of the Smithsonian’s recent collaborations with tribes on 3D replication projects.
Cosponsored by Penn Museum and the Price Lab for Digital Humanities.
