ETHICAL, SCIENTIFIC, AND FORENSIC CONSIDERATIONS OF HUMAN REMAINS IN HAWAI’I

Human remains in any context demand the utmost respect. Iwi are considered the sacred embodiment of the person, their mana.  We will discuss basic human osteology during this workshop, but focus on the ethical treatment of remains in the context of Hawaiian archaeology and go over the burial laws of Hawaii and their articulation with the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act of 1990.  Additionally, we will discuss some aspects of forensic analysis of remains within the Island context.
