When you visit a museum and see collections of Native artifacts on display, do you ever wonder how it was acquired?  Trevor Bond tells the story of one collection of Nez Perce items as it makes its way rightfully home to its Indigenous community thus examining the ethics of acquiring Native cultural history.  Through extensive interviews with Nez Perce experts and in depth archival research, we learn not only the story of this particular collection but are left examining a bigger conversation on the ethics of exhibits and collections of Native objects.  A regionally specific book with broader implications.
