University of Michigan to review policies on returning Indian remains

By David N. Goodman
Detroit, Michigan (AP)

Facing criticism for still holding the remains of about 1,400 Native Americans in its archaeological collection, the University of Michigan will be reviewing its policies on how to properly deal with Indian bones and artifacts.

A committee charged with looking at the legal, ethical and scientific concerns involved will meet for the first time next week and “will hear all sides of the story,” said Stephen Forrest, vice president for research at the Ann Arbor school.

It's about time they returned our people's remains. My First Nation battled them for a couple years, and with the help of a Band in Michigan we were finally able to repatriate the bones and burial items.
