ART NEWS – Crystal Cavalier-Keck, an Indigenous advocate of the Occaneechi band of the Saponi tribe, uploaded several TikTok videos about the Mebane Antique Auction Gallery in North Carolina listing a 600-year-old Indigenous skull for sale. “There’s nothing that we can do about it in the state of North Carolina,” she said in the video, citing the lack of lack of federally recognized tribes nearby and the wide-ranging estimate of $100 to $10,000. “The bid is already up to $1,700.” The online listing for the small skull, Lot 243, describes it as “completely original, missing some teeth.”
