Human Remains

The physical remains of our ancestors are sacred and cannot be shown to the public. We believe our physical remains, our bones, contain our sqwélqwel, our true histories. They tell details about us as individuals—height, age, sex, and health. Samples of bone respectfully collected through archaeology or repatriation also tell about diet and genetic ties to living relations.
