9th Circuit Rules For Repatriating Skeletons

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - The 9th Circuit on Wednesday refused to overturn the repatriation of 9,000-year-old skeletons to the Kumeyaay Indian Tribes.


In 2012, the Kumeyaay Cultural Repatriation Committee, consisting of 12 tribes in San Diego County, sued the University of California in the San Diego federal court. The tribes argued that the school was required to repatriate the remains under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act.
