Tlingit Tribes to Get Ancient Remains

There are 2 comments on the Oct 20, 2007, The Associated Press story titled Tlingit Tribes to Get Ancient Remains . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“The elders also saw it as a way of validating our ancient presence here in southeast Alaska”

Human remains estimated to be more than 10,000 years old will be returned to southeast Alaska Tlingit tribes 11 years after they were found in a cave in the Tongass National Forest.

It's the first time a federal agency has conveyed custody of such ancient remains to indigenous groups under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, U.S. Forest Service officials said Friday.

'It's a pretty substantial find,' said Tongass spokesman Phil Sammon.

Vertebrae, ribs, teeth, a mandible and a pelvic bone were among the remains discovered in 1996 during a Forest Service archaeological survey for a proposed timber sale on northern Prince of Wales Island. The area is the aboriginal homeland for Tlingit tribes. Read more
