Friends of America's Past

About Us | News & Comment

Welcome to Our Updated Website

We've reorganized the existing information and added a search function. If you encounter a glitch, please let us know.

We'll continue to keep you informed about the latest Kennewick Man news. In the next few weeks we'll also add early legal documents so the record is available in one place.

Our focus beyond the Kennewick Man dispute is to gather the facts in other controversial NAGPRA implementation decisions. For example, in 21 instances the Department of the Interior gave unidentified human remains (and in some cases human remains that were identified as other than American Indian), to American Indian tribes.

We'll also be keeping tabs on the DOI's proposed regulations for the disposition of culturally unidentified human remains under NAGPRA.

We hope this new site is easy to use. Please send us information, links, and comments. We appreciate hearing from you.
