Demands for repatriation of lost cultural patrimony and stolen human remains make weekly headlines around the world. Join the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, the Ethiopian Community Association of Chicago, the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian and the National Hellenic Museum in deepening your understanding of the complexities of repatriation in this panel discussion. Experts will share the history, repercussions in the community, and current repatriation efforts in Indigenous communities of the US and Canada, China, Greece, and Ethiopia. The discussion will be accompanied by a photographic pop-up exhibit showing how the demands for the return of lost cultural treasures can unite ethnicities and nationalities.

Inherit Chicago is a month-long festival of intercultural art, ideas and performance at neighborhood heritage institutions brought to you by Chicago Cultural Alliance. It is the first and only intercultural festival that highlights the rich diversity across the city’s neighborhoods, and promotes cultural and community understanding.
