Kennewick Man Was Native American After All



     PORTLAND, Ore. (CN) - Kennewick Man, a 9,000-year-old skeleton that created a furor when scientists said it appeared to be from a European settler, was Native American after all, the Army Corps of Engineers said Wednesday.
     The discovery of the almost complete skeleton along the Columbia River in 1996 led to two decades of controversy.
     Named for the town near the site where two college students stumbled upon the skeleton, Kennewick Man created heated debate over who owned the remains, and its genetic origins.
