Maori Skeletons Back to New Zealand?

The University of Lund in southern Sweden has asked the government for permission to return 3 Maori skeletons to New Zealand - part of the program to return the bones of indigenous people to their homelands.

The university received the skeletons via London.

Meanwhile, the indigenous people of northern Sweden – the Samis – are demanding that bones of their ancestors be returned from the nation's museums for proper burial - but so far this has not happened.
