I am sure a more authorative site could be found that would have the same
information posted - this was just the first one that popped up. After
reading this - there is no way I would do a lesson having my students
duplicate the false face mask style (I never had my students use false face
anyway). I still think it is OK for students to know about the masks - and
know why they are no longer in museums for viewing.
The site that was posted earlier today has a revision to this policy that it
is now OK for Iroquois to sell mask that they make for commercial purposes -
masks that are not "blessed".
