A United Nations conference has called for an intensified effort to achieve the repatriation of Indigenous ceremonial objects and human remains being held in foreign museums and other institutions.

It's a key outcome of the inaugural World Conference on Indigenous Peoples that has just ended at UN headquarters in New York

As Kristina Kukolja reports, it's an area where Australia in some respects appears to have led the way.
