U 0f M to discuss returning remains

Ann Arbor, Michigan is discussing returning Native American remains for proper care and burial.  U of M is meeting with tribes to decide the best way to go about the return.

The laws are very clear when speaking about Native American remains.  The U.S. department of Interior states that under the Native American Graves Protection and Reparation Act that if the remains can be proven to be the right time frame and the right location of Native American tribes that the remains must be returned to the tribes.

Michigan faced harsh criticism recently for not returning Native American remains from 1,400 Native Americans.
