The ethnographic encounter has, more often than not, yielded the outsiders perspective. In this volume, local and international voices engaging the field and the archive interrogate objects and a few of anthropology’s ancestors. In this way fresh insights are gained that enrich our understanding our colonial history, the motivations of its many actors, and what it means for ethnographic collections, contemporary expressions and communities of origin. This is an important intellectual exercise as certainly unearthing the ghosts of colonialism will yield new responses, and their effects may extend beyond the control of ancestors, of genealogies and anthropological theories.
