Letters: Selling Hopi masks

April 17, 2013

Re "French auction defies tribe," April 13

In reporting on the travesty of the French auction of objects sacred to the Hopi people, whose masks embody ancestors, why would The Times tell readers that the Hopi tribe keeps them "out of public view and consider it sacrilegious even for pictures of the objects to be shown," and then publish photographs of four of the masks to accompany the article?

How do you justify your disrespect?
