More often than not, the museum world reimagines repatriation from a theoretical viewpoint based on the development of policy or procedure that will enable or obstruct repatriation. This can lead to a feeling of impossibility surrounding repatriation due to the obstacles and complexities the process presents.

Together with tribal representatives, experts who proactively support tribal elders with the process of repatriation and museum practitioners who have successfully engaged with international repatriations, this conversation will share how participants have navigated the many hoops of the repatriation process, as well as the new practices they have developed.

We hope our shared learnings from doing repatriation will help to shape better returns processes and new pathways that can support reconciliation, redress and healing.
