New funding will allow communities in British Columbia to bring home the remains of over 700 Indigenous ancestors. Currently, the remains are in the Royal BC Museum. The Gitxaala Nation, the Lower Nicola Indian Band, and the Stk’emlupsemc Te Secwepemc Nation will use the funding to create repatriation committees. These committees will determine how and when to reclaim the remains.
