ICOM's statement on the devastating fire in the National Museum of Brazil
The International Council of Museums (ICOM) expressed its deep sorrow regarding the devastating fire that has destroyed the National Museum of Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, the biggest natural history museum in Latin America and Brazil’s oldest museological institution. On this dark day for not only Brazilian heritage but also for the world’s heritage, we wished to reiterate our unshakable belief in the resilience and professionalism of Brazil’s museum professionals, and our faith in their ability to recover from this painful event.

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY
Trends and influences on museum anthropology and the study of indigenous peoples
Many of the world’s longstanding natural history museums have extensive collections of materials created by indigenous peoples, and, in many cases, collections of whole bodies and body parts of such peoples. In Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada, active and extensive programs of repatriating human remains have been undertaken. Progress on this has been much slower or in many cases non-existent in Eastern and Western Europe.
