Remains Of Winnebago Man Returned To Tribe

Posted: 27 December, 2012

WINNEBAGO, Neb. (AP) - The remains of a Winnebago man are being turned over to his tribe for burial after decades in a museum. The man had been among Native Americans who were forced out of Minnesota and into South Dakota after the Sioux uprising in 1862. His remains were found by a U.S. Army surgeon about five miles south of Fort Randall along a riverbank in south-central South Dakota.  The remains eventually wound up at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History. The museum is following a 1989 federal law in turning over the remains to the tribe. The tribe has set aside space for remains at the Winnebago village cemetery.
