The Kennewick Man litigation is still pending and, depending on
the outcome, may
provide significant and important judicial case law interpreting
the Native American
Graves Protection and Repatriation Act. Paula is one of the
eight anthropologists in their quest to study the skeleton. She
will present an overview
of the litigation to help understand the theories that are presently before the U.S.
District Court for the District of Oregon. She will also discuss
the interests of some of
the scientists who are seeking study rights, and why, and explain
what is likely to
happen over the next six months in this interesting litigation.
Because the case is still
pending, this is intended to be an informative discussion and not
an argument for or
