Plundered Skulls and Stolen Spirits: Inside the Fight to Reclaim Native America’s Culture with Dr. Chip Colwell, Senior Curator of Anthropology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Presenting a new book, Dr. Colwell shares his personal journey to illuminate how repatriation has transformed both American museums and Native communities. This story reveals why U.S. repatriation law has become an imperfect but necessary tool to resolve the collision of worldviews between scientists and Native Americans – to decide the nature of the sacred and the destiny of souls.
