museum refuses to return Native American remains.
somebody should dig up their ancestors.
hope someone notices.
I have officially removed myself from performing at the Karl May Festival in Radebeul, Germany that will occur May 30- June 1, 2014 in quiet protest to the recent actions of the Karl May Museum and its culturally insensitive management of Native American artifacts at the museum. I have just become aware of the museum’s refusal to remove specific Native American human remains from their storage and repatriate them to the proper tribes in the United States. Frankly, I find this treatment of our people unacceptable.
I feel it is inappropriate for me to participate. I do not want to be associated with an institution that does not respect and give dignity to the very group of people they are supposed to be honoring.
Thank you. Please share.
