The bones of nearly 2,000 American Indians were handed over to a New Mexico tribe by Harvard University for proper burial. It was the largest transfer under the 1990 federal law that requires the return of Indian artifacts, the university said.

Made for the Los Angeles Public Library's Central Library, Loretta Livingston's new dance, "Read the Bones," is a quiet, thoughtful piece inspired by Jud Fine's fountain work outside the library's Flower Street entrance. So many people enter the downtown library from the parking lot, traveling by internal staircase or elevator practically right to the library's doorstep, that they miss the fountains and the Maguire Gardens. This is a huge mistake of public planning.
