Mummy Dummy 6: Museums

There are definitely still some mummy dummies around who contribute to the disrespectful exhibition of human remains. Here is my list of mummies that should be buried or returned as soon as possible:

1. The Lemon Grove Mummies at the Museum of Man (San Diego, CA). Stolen from Mexico, these native American mummies have been displayed for all to see. The Mummy Dummies don't understand that it is unjustifiable to display native American remains.  

2. The  "Mummies of the Insane" at the Barbour County Historical Museum (Philippi, WV). A misguided doctor's mummymaking experiment, the bodies were taken from a nearby insane asylum. Mummy Dummies don't understand why the experiment was wrong--and why the display of these bodies is wrong as well.

3. The Guanajuato Mummies at the Museum de las momias (Guanajuato, Mexico). Removed from their graves for failing to pay a grave tax, these bodies were found to be naturally mummified; then the Mummy Dummies took over.

4. The Toi Moko Maori heads from New Zealand at the American Museum of Natural History (New York City). Sacred to the Maori, the largest collection of these tattooed heads is at this museum in its ethnological specimens. The Perth Museum in Scotland recently returned its two heads. Why can't the AMNH do the same?
