    Argentina: Indigenous communities want to bury ancestors in Nordelta

    “It takes a while to define where they will be buried ... but it is a place in Nordelta,” Chara said.

    The bodies of 42 members of an indigenous community who were removed from their resting places by US archaeologist Samuel Lothrop in 1925 are to be restored to their historical land in what will be the largest restitution carried out so far in Argentina and which has been approved Monday by the National Institute of Indigenous Affairs (INAI).
