Abstract: 

How can processes of commodification be both harmful and beneficial to people around the world? What tools and strategies can Indigenous communities and scholars use to deal with commodification concerns and opportunities? IPinCH has developed a series of resources to address complex topics such as the role of government and legislation in regulating cultural commodification, whether commodification can benefit disempowered communities, and the impact of treating human remains as commodities, whether in medical science or museums.
