Reclaiming the Remains: ONGI Working to Repatriate 11 Namibian Remains

Early this year (2017), the ONGI signed a cooperation agreement with the Berliner Gesellschaft für Archäologie, Ethnologie und Urgeschichte (BGAEU) to conduct provenance research on Namibian human remains so that they can be repatriated.   BGAEU is a scientific society in Berlin, Germany that has in its possession human remains from different parts of the world including 11 from Namibia.  ONGI was invited to discuss our cooperation with BGAEU at the Prusssina Colonial Heritage: Sacred Objects and Human Remains in Berlin Museums, October 14 – 14, in Berlin Germany.
