Native American Determination for Kennewick Man

Based upon review and analysis of new information related to the skeleton known as Kennewick Man,

and in particular, evidence provided by recently published DNA and skeletal analyses, I find that there is substantial evidence to determine that Kennewick Man is related to modern Native Americans from the United States. Therefore, the human remains are Native American under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), as described below.
