Ever since time immemorial, europeans have been studying us Africans, following us, copying us, envying us, causing us harm, killing us, destabilising our countries, taking out whoever doesn't follow their orders, now they want to dig up our ancestors disrespectfully!!!!   What do you want with the remains, what do you want with our land!! We just wish you would disappear and leave us the bleep alone!!!!

I believe that the best kind of anthropological research is collaborative. The voices of the ancestors of those who are being exhumed should be heard and incorporated in any research moving forward.
