It seems best to begin this paper with a brief account of the origins of the Return, Reconcile Renew Project (hereafter RRR). It arose out of conversations through 2013 among several of the current research team with expertise in provenance research supporting Indigenous Australians in repatriating the bodily remains of their ancestors – Old People, as they respectfully call them – from museums and other Western medico-scientific institutions to their care for reburial.
