Museum in Argentina plans to display Indian children
Tuesday, September 20, 2005
A museum in Argentina is running into controversy over its plan to display the bodies of three mummified Indian children who were discovered in preserved condition.

The Museum of High Altitude Archaeology hopes to start showing the children to the public on November 19. People will be charged $3 to view the exhibit, The Washington Post reports.

But indigenous activists and some museum officials say the public display is disrespectful. The Indigenous Association of Argentina is trying to stop the exhibit before it opens.

The three children are believed to be 500 years old. They were discovered on a mountaintop in Salta six years ago. Environmental conditions preserved their bodies and clothes.
