Columbia River bone turned over to tribes

Richland, Washington (AP) November 2010

A human jawbone found along the Columbia River last year on Corps of Engineers property north of Richland has been turned over to a group of Indian Tribes.

The Tri-City Herald reports an anthropologist hired by the corps determined the bone and teeth were 300-to-350 years old and appeared to be Native American.

The corps turned the bone over to a group of tribal governments for the region.

In 1996 a 9,300-year-old skeleton known as Kennewick Man was found in the Columbia near Kennewick. That touched off an ongoing dispute between tribes, who want to bury the bones, and scientists who want to study them.
