Yellowstone returns ancestors to Shoshone tribes

Yellowstone National Park is returning the remains of a woman and an infant to the Eastern Shoshone Tribe of Wyoming and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes of Idaho.

The remains were linked to the tribes after years of research. The woman and infant, along with a dog and some artifacts, were uncovered in the park in the 1950s.

The repatriation to the tribes is the first in Yellowstone's history, the park's cultural anthropologist said.
