How would you feel if your ancestors were dug up from their graves and the belongings interred with them were taken? What if it was done in the name of science? These issues lie at the crux of this PBS program. Narrated by Will Lyman, Thieves of Time examines the age-old clash between white archaeologists and Native Americans, the latter seeking respect for the sacredness of their ancestral burial grounds. Introduced by Tony Hillerman, author of the acclaimed Navajo mystery series, this video takes its title from Hillerman's novel A Thief of Time, winner of the 1989 Macavity Award. The novel deals with the burial ground issue in fictionalized form.
