A ceremony was held in Stuttgart on Friday for the repatriation of eight aboriginal remains from a museum in Stuttgart to Australia.
Representatives of the Yidinji aboriginal community in Australia traveled to Germany to receive the remains to ensure they are repatriated in a culturally appropriate manner.
The Australian Ambassador to Germany, Lynette Wood, described the return of ancestral... Еще remains to their indigenous land as a «profoundly important issue for Australian indigenous peoples.»
The Director of the Linden-Museum in Stuttgart, Prof. Dr. Ines de Castro, offered her «deep apologies for the way your ancestors have been brutally removed from their communities and mistreated under our roof. There are simply not enough words for this.»
The ceremony is part of a total of 53 Australian indigenous remains that will be repatriated from museums across Germany in April.
