If sacred or ceremonial objects are returned to the Navajo Nation, officials there will look for a tribal member who can use them in ceremonies, said Alan Downer, manager of the Navajo Nation's historic preservation department.
"We don't want to see them go unused," Downer said.

Still, they'd be happy to get back any items illegally taken from tribal land.
"The sense around here is that this is a good thing," Downer said.
