James Cuno's usual argument

James Cuno's (yawn) usual argument Who owns our heritage? ("James Cuno of the Getty Foundation says that antiquities belong to us all, not to the states where they happen to be, and that they should be universally accessible"). Just antiquities, or cultural property in general? What about Native American antiquities, do they belong to "us all"? What does NAGPRA say about that? Maybe instead of shouting his mouth off about what the US "art market" expect foreign "source countries" to expect, Cuno could apply the same arguments closer to home first. Let's have another sacred mask and katchina auction shall we? After all, does not this stuff already belong to ALL of us, Mr Cuno?

Or does it?
