Simultaneously, the isolation that formerly characterized life on the remote reservations in marginal areas that the government relegated to them began to break down because of the development of interstate highways, radio, television, and the intrusions of tourists. These developments have had such a devastating effect on the transmission of traditional beliefs and practices that the remnants of earlier times preserved in museums have increasingly become a cultural focus. Control over these collections is an important political issue for Native Americans because, by gaining control over the biological and cultural remains of their ancestors, they can begin to reassert their cultural identity within the dominant Euro-American culture.

The ancient Greeks held elaborate funeral rituals to help a dead person’s soul find its way across the River Styx to a community of souls in the underworld. Once in the underworld there was continued communion between the living and the dead. For example, the soul of a dead person could be reborn in a new body if their living family members continued to attend to their needs by bringing them honey cakes and other special foods on ceremonial occasions (Barber, 1988). By medieval times most people continued to view death as a semi-permanent state in which the living and the spirit of the dead person could maintain contact with each other.
