The general goals of this study are to identify, describe and summarize mortuary patterns and bio-archaeological studies within the Pacific Northwest. A major purpose is to compile this information in a form that will help address the possible cultural affiliation of Kennewick human remains with present-day Indian tribes. The specific objective is to identify continuities, discontinuities, and gaps in mortuary information and bio-archaeological data for the Middle Columbia River region from 9500...


Cultural Affiliation Report, Chapter 1: Background and Scope for the Kennewick Man Cultural Affiliation Reports (2000)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Francis McManamon. Jason Roberts. Brooke S. Blades.

As part of its responsibilities in the Kennewick Man case, the Department of the Interior was trying to make a determination of the disposition of the human remains under the requirements of NAGPRA. Since the issue of disposition was at least in part related to whether the remains could be culturally affiliated under the terms of NAGPRA, four studies by experts in anthropological, archaeological, cultural, and historical topics relevant to this determination were undertaken by the DOI....

Cultural Affiliation Report, Chapter 4: Review of Linguistic Information (2000)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Eugene S. Hunn.

The Kennewick Man remains were found in shallow water along the edge of the Columbia River. It is believed that the remains eroded from the river bank at Columbia Park in what now is Kennewick, Washington, in July 1996. Preliminary C14 dating of the bone suggested the remains might be approximately 9,000 (C14) years old. At issue is the application of provisions of NAGPRA with regard to the repatriation of the remains to a coalition of tribes and bands (Confederated Tribes of the Colville...
