The Vanishing Architect

This is an interesting story that, like so many others covering Native issues, starts out as one thing and ends up as another. In this case, the suggestion seems to be that where "real" or cultural property was being stolen up until now (the other CNN story drools over the fact that the museum is "one of the last sections of prime real estate on Washington's greatest expanse" as if reparations had begun), we've entered "the beginning of a new era": now it's intellectual property that's being stolen by the U.S.
