LYNDEN - When a collector offered to pay the Lynden Pioneer Museum $200,000 for two bowls and a frontlet carved by Northwest Coast Indian tribes, Troy Luginbill figured that if the man was like most collectors, his offer was on the low side.

I have a problem selling and auctioning Indian artifacts unless the Indians are doing this themselves-and the monies should go to the families and tribes-just my uninformed opinion.

I have reservations about auctioning items left to a museum by an individual at death. They are no longer able to say it is ok with them. But on the other hand, I guess even museums are hard hit with the economy crunch also.
