Museum in Germany balks at repatriating scalps to tribes in US
The Karl May Museum in Germany is holding onto 17 scalps despite requests from tribes to repatriate them for reburial.Some of the scalps were put on display in public, drawing an angry reaction from the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians in Michigan and other tribes. The museum eventually decided to place them in storage but won’t return them unless a clear link can be shown to a particular tribe. 

That’s shameful!
