Critics force out Indian dioramas at museum


The popular American Indian dioramas at a University of Michigan museum -- frozen in time for the past half-century -- will be packed up and put away.
It's not because these tiny wax figurines depicting traditional American Indian life are offensive, as they display caring for children, cleaning animal hides or harvesting corn. It's because some say American Indian culture should not be displayed alongside dinosaur bones and other long-extinct beings.
