DOI mum on Kennewick Man appeal
Facebook Twitter Email

The Department of Interior's expected appeal of the Kennewick Man decision has yet to come.

A spokesperson would not tell The Denver Post if a challenge is coming. A federal magistrate ordered the bones of the 9,000-year-old Native man be available for study.

Eight scientists want to conduct various tests and are to submit a plan by October 15. Five Pacific Northwest tribes claim Kennewick as an ancestor and oppose study.

Four of the five tribes want permission to appeal the case. They say the government isn't representing their interests.
