Child's remains returned to Kanosh Paiute Band
The state of Utah repatriated the remains of a child to the Kanosh Band of Paiute Indians.

The remains were uncovered in 1999. They were found on private land so the state's version of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act came into play for the first time.

"It went unchallenged, so it lays the groundwork for future repatriations," Forrest Cuch, the director of the Utah Division of Indian Affairs, told The Salt Lake Tribune.

The remains were dated to the late 1800s. The child was buried with a set of beads that were made in Italy.

The headquarters of the Kanosh Band are located about 16 miles from the site where the remains were discovered.
