Precious cargo: Remains of Native Americans are removed from Harvard University’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology as tribal members look on. Since the early 1900s the museum had stored the bones of some 2,000 New Mexico Pueblo Indians, as well as pottery and other funerary items. The material was repatriated and the human remains reburied at Pecos National Historical Park in New Mexico in 1999 under a federal law permitting tribes to petition for property taken from ancestral lands.
