This is a big question with many nuances: Very likely there's no single answer that will apply to all situations equally. One very important factor, though, should be respecting the rights, ethics and wishes of the indigenous cultures, be they Native American, Greek, Egyptian, Polynesian, or whatever. If there is a plausible case that artifacts were looted or otherwise misappropriated, serious consideration should be given to making things right even at this late date.
