some records may contain names, images, and recordings of deceased individuals and
that some records document human remains.
We welcome feedback. The web database is not a complete record of the
Museum's anthropological holdings and documentation for a collection item will vary due
to when and how it was collected as well as how recently it was accessed. While efforts
are made to ensure the accuracy of the information available on this website, some content
may contain errors. We work with descendant communities around the world to interpret the
collections in order to promote a greater understanding of global heritage and, through
consultation, will remove information that is inaccurate or inappropriate. We encourage
