Tribes seek Kennewick Man appeal
Facebook Twitter Email
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2002

Four Pacific Northwest tribes who count the 9,000-year-old remains of a Native man as their ancestor are seeking to appeal a court decision that allows him to be studied.

The Nez Perce, Umatilla, Yakama and Colville tribes said the United States no longer represents its interests. They also said the government is incapable of defending their rights.

A federal magistrate on August 30 said Kennewick Man should be studied and not repatriated to the tribes. An appeal has been expected but the tribes say there has been no formal notice filed by the government.
