Ancient aboriginal remains reburied

  • Print

WILSALL, Mon. -- The 12,600-year-old remains of an infant boy were reburied Saturday in an aboriginal ceremony in the U.S. after scientists recovered DNA from the child discovered in Montana in 1968.

The boy's remains were put back as close as possible to the original burial site. Two film crews, about 30 aboriginal tribal representatives and others attended the ceremony, the Billings Gazette reported.

"I hope that this is the final closure for you, too, as it is for us," said Crow tribal elder Thomas Larson Medicine Horse Sr., addressing the family on whose property the child was found.

The DNA taken from the boy provided new indications of the ancient roots of today's North American aboriginals and other native people of the Americas.
