#36 - The Problem with Repatriation and Tribal Death Norms: The evolution of Indigenous epistemologies
Manage episode 322601612 series 2702105
Death is one of the final cultural expression in any society. The discussion of death and mourning can be a sensitive topic. The TRS team discuss current and modern beliefs related to human remains in relation to repatriation of objects from museums. This is contrasted with the what we understand about the beliefs of our ancestor. Importantly, where and how did current beliefs diverge from past traditions? Or, have they even diverged? The discussion centers on some protocols that may have evolved to fit into the changing social and cultural reality.
In the second half the TRS team furthers the discussion centered on current issues surrounding the perpetuation of internal romantic ideas and misconceptions. These issues can stifle progress within our indigenous traditions and can continue to spread belief that may not be contributing to addressing the reality of today. In the end the discussion wraps up by tackling how this concept also applies to current understanding of Indigenous research and knowledge production in Tribal communities.
