Returning Home
Photograph by Ira Block

Preparing for the journey home, Jemez archaeologist and tribal preservation officer William Whatley and War Chief Pete Toya inspect the loading of the transport truck in Massachusetts. Toya presided over the reburial ceremony; Whatley was instrumental in documenting the Indians’ claim to the remains. The repatriation and reburial followed years of legal and historical research and negotiations with museum officials.
