However, there may be some oversights due to the diversity and breadth of the collection.

Policy on photographs of human remains & funerary items

Images showing human remains and known funerary items have been excluded from all image searches because of their cultural sensitivity. Metadata about these images can be found through the Image Query page. If you identify a record with the image file redacted and are interested in obtaining the image, users may contact the repository institution (contact information listed above) to seek permission. Please note, such requests will be granted at the discretion of the Director of the Salmon Ruins Museum.

Some documents contain polaroid photographs used for in-field documentation. In cases where the polaroid image showed human remains, these images have also been redacted from the documents. To access the original document, users should contact the Salmon Ruins Museum directly.
