For the scientific colloquium held at the MNHN around the restitution of the french collections of Maorie Heads to New Zealand, my colleague Phillip Endicott and I give a short report conference about our molecular study of the collection of the maori heads to be restituted to Te Papa Museum.

We make a French/English conference where I deal with the French part. Time is 15:15 to 15:45 and the set of conferences takes place at the “Auditorium de la Grande Galerie”, MNHN (Paris).

Here is a copy of the schedule of the afternoon.

Frédéric Léwino from french journal Le Point discusses the reasons and conditions of this restitution in a witty report.
you can also read a short report on francetv.info with some footage of the restitution ceremony.
