Looted African Sculpted Arts - Calls lntensify for Restitution

The Africa Avenir International Foundation, the organisation spearheading the fight for the restitution of stolen African arts abjects in Europe, organised a workshop on Monday August 27 at its head office in Bonaberi Douala with special focus on the restitution of not only the national patrimony but also the African patrimony.

Speaking during the opening ceremony, the founding president of Africa Avenir International Foundation, Prince Kum'a Ndumbe III, said it was custornary of the organisation to celebrate the collective rnernory of the people every year. First it was in honour of people who lived under colonialisrn and then heroes of the lndependence struggle and this year focus is on the restitution of looted sculpted arts from Africa.

He said the colonialists robbed Africans of their memory; spiritually, intellectually and culturally. He appealed to government and UNESCO to assist in the fight for the restitution of the stolen arts abjects. He said Africa has corne of age and restoring African history begins from the restitution of the stolen arts works. "15000 arts abjects are found at the Quai Branly museum in France alone. Prince Kum'a Ndumbe equally called for the repatriation of the skeletons of Africans taken to Europe as trophy of war.

The representative of UNESCO at the workshop, Christian Ndombi said the Douala meeting coincides with a similar meeting to be organised by UNESCO in the days ahead on the illicit trafficking of cultural abjects during which he said, UNESCO will be recomrnending the restitution of African arts objects whether stolen, bought or offered as gifts. He said they will also be sensitising the forces of law and order as well as the customs on the differences between arts objects and artisanal abjects.

The Governor of the littoral Region, Samuel lvaha Diboua promised to transmit the concerns of the NGO to the appropriate quarters saying the issue is pertinent to our history. Issues to be raised during the workshop include conquest. Resistance and looting of sculpted arts during colonialism. Destinations of looted abjects, attitude of some colonial masters to the issue of restitution,  elaboration of African principles on restitution and several other issues
