Teaching Very old bones returned to tribes

Very old bones returned to tribes

In 1996, ancient human remains were found inside an Alaskan cave. They were discovered during a U.S. Forest Service archaeological study. Now, the U.S. government is ready to hand over the remains to the southeast Alaska Tlingit tribes. They are the bones’ rightful owners. It will be the first time the government has returned such an ancient find to a native group.
