Thieves of Time

Who owns the past? Throughout history, pot hunters looted Indian graves for treasure and archaeologists excavated them for scientific data.

Introduced by novelist Tony Hillerman, this documentary traces the history of our country’s fascination with Indian burial grounds, which are sacred to Native Americans, through 500 years of cultural, scientific and legal change. Viewers learn how landmark legislation has built a new understanding among American Indians, scientists and the museum community. 30 minutes.
