THE ART NEWS PAPER – Glasgow City Council in Scotland has voted to return 17 Benin bronze artefacts from the city’s museum collections to Nigeria in one of the largest ever repatriation agreements approved by a UK institution. The council also voted to return 25 Native American items from the Lakota people that were sold and donated to the city’s museum collection by the Lakota interpreter George Crager in 1892. Some of them were taken from the Wounded Knee massacre site (December 1890) in the US state of South Dakota. Seven Indian antiquities will also be returned to their country of origin.
