Kennewick Man is a very important and controversial
archaeological find from Washington State The finder of the remains
is an archeologist named James Chatters. These skeletal remains,
which pre-date the earliest Native American remains, exhibit
Caucasoid H.sapien features. Local Native American groups have
demanded that the remains be repatrioted (reburied) rather than
studied by paleoanthrpologists. It'll be tied up in the courts for a
long time, unfortunately.

If there's ANY videotape presentation of this important
scientific/political topic, I'd want to know about it.
