Remains of Native-Americans are buried in Michigan

MOUNT PLEASANT, May 18, 2013 (AP): The remains of 11 Native-Americans, including two sets that were housed at the University of Nebraska State Museum, have been buried in a Michigan cemetery.

A ceremony was held Friday for the burial of the remains at the Nibokaan Ancestral Cemetery on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe reservation, which is near Mount Pleasant.

The remains in Nebraska were unearthed from a site in the Midland, Mich., area in the late 1800s and transferred to the museum.

The remains of the other nine people were discovered during a 2012 Michigan highway project and since have been kept in Lansing.

The Nibokaan cemetery was established in 1995 as the final resting place for repatriated ancestors.
