Repatriation to the Gunaikurnai, Menang, and Ngarrindjeri
[Translate to English:] text
Delegations from Gunaikurnai, Menang, and Ngarrindjeri communities in Australia traveled to Leipzig to bring their ancestors back home. 45 ancestral remains and hair samples had been uncovered by SES researchers, who performed archival analyses to determine how they entered the SES Collections. Australian representatives from each community as well as representatives from the government took part in the Leipzig ceremony.
