This discussion based session examines the relationship between museums and indigenous peoples, as well as current issues with collection, curation and repatriation. Students will learn how the collections come to the Museum and how we navigate the ethics of display and access for indigenous communities.
This gallery taught session explores the different ways in which people in the past have prepared their dead. Funerary rituals, grave goods, and ancestor veneration are just a few of the topics discussed while students see first-hand burial artefacts from the Museum’s collection.
Duration: 1.5 hours
Session Format: A museum teacher will lead the first 45 minutes of the session. Students will then have a chance to independently investigate the galleries and conduct their own object research.
