Cultural Affiliation Report Kennewick Man: All Chapters


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 BP to the early 19th century.
