French Parliament votes to return Maori heads to NZ

The French Parliament on Tuesday voted to return around 15 tattooed and mummified heads of Maori warriors to NZ, ending years of debate over restitution of human remains.



Paris: The French Parliament on Tuesday voted to
return around 15 tattooed and mummified heads of Maori
warriors to New Zealand, ending years of debate over the
restitution of the human remains.

The warrior heads are stored in several French museums,
including seven or eight at Paris` Quai Branly, home to a big
collection of tribal art set up by ex-President Jacques
Chirac.

Only eight lawmakers in the 570-seat National Assembly
voted against the measure that would remove the warrior heads
from the permanent collections of several museums.
