Onondaga Nation to rebury ancestral remains
The Onondaga Nation of New York will rebury the remains of 180 ancestors in a private ceremony on the reservation.

The tribe was locked in a decade-plus battle with the New York State Museum over the remains and associated artifacts. The museum finally agreed to return the ancestors after a review panel created by the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Review Act sided with the tribe.

The ancestors were uncovered in 1967 and date between 1000 and 1550.
