As seen in this article, Sweden is returning Native Hawaiian skulls taken by scientists in the 1880s.  During this time period many European nations visting the Pacific Islands took native items, relics, and human remains from native sites for research and display.  It is very honorable and a sign of respect for these governments to return the human remains to be laid to rest with the dignity and cultural heritage that binds them to their homelands.
