Numerous museums and collections contain artifacts, cultural objects, and human remains that were taken from Indigenous peoples without their consent. Repatriation efforts to return these culturally important objects and remains to their communities have only relatively recently begun gaining traction among the general public. Return, Reconcile, Renew (RRR) is one such effort whose website and digital archive, which launched in September 2019, aim "to increase understanding about repatriation and to help those who wish to locate their Ancestors' remains and bring them home." Based in Melbourne, this resource focuses primarily on the Indigenous peoples of Australia, such as the Ngarrindjeri, the Torres Strait Islanders, and the Aboriginal groups of the Kimberley region. A good place for visitors to start is by exploring the Archive, where they will find a wealth of information organized into categories such as Digital Objects, Indigenous Peoples, Explainers, and Published Resources. The RRR website is the latest development of the international project by the same name that began in 2013, whose partner organizations include research institutions in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, as well as community organizations led by Indigenous groups in Australia.
