US Senate Bill Would Stop Export Of Native American Artifacts

A bill pending in the U.S. Senate would curtail the exporting and sale of items sacred to Native American tribes. This has been an issue, with some items going to auction in France.

The Safeguard Tribal Objects of Patrimony, or STOP Act, would increase penalties under an existing law that aims to get items back to the tribes to whom they belong.

Joining KJZZ's The Show with more on this is Peter Pilles, the forest archaeologist for the Coconino National Forest.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
