Open Restitution Africa

Open Restitution Africa (ORA) is an African-restitution-centered project founded by Molemo Moiloa (RSA) and Chao Tayiana Maina (Kenya). The project is premised on facilitating better access to information about processes of restitution of African material culture and human ancestors from museums across the world back to the African continent. By collating existing data relating to restitution debates, ongoing issues and progress, we offer valuable insights into current concerns around restitution. We focus on the needs and discourse on the African continent specifically, and work towards tools for African restitution activists and African publics.
