Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

April 29: “Are We Still Fighting the Skull Wars?: Repatriation in the 21st Century”

Lecture by Archaeologist David Hurst Thomas, Curator, American Museum of Natural History

When: Friday, April 29, 2005, 7:00 pm

Where: IUPUI Informatics and Communication Technology Classroom (ICTC) Building, Room 152

Dr. Thomas will trace the five-hundred-year roots of the Kennewick Man controversy. As an update to his best-selling book, Skull Wars, Dr. Thomas chronicles the brutal massacres in which skulls of Indian warriors were sent east to build America’s greatest museum collections. Dr. Thomas details the interactions between archaeologists and native people, and urges the two groups to define the common ground necessary to work together in the future.
