Daley, Paul: Fight for Indigenous relics

‘”It taunts us spiritually”: the fight for Indigenous relics spirited off to the UK‘, Guardian Australia, 14 February 2015

Updates the battle by Indigenous Australians to return to Australia relics taken to England by collectors in the nineteenth century. The article anticipates an exhibition later this year at the National Museum of Australia of Indigenous cultural property now held in the British Museum. The exhibition is likely to provoke controversy and renewed efforts to have such relics returned to Australia.
