      SECOND REPORT

      PROVINCIAL:
              HAIDA ANCESTORS REPATRIATED FROM ROYAL BC MUSEUM

      CBC RADIO NEWS - BRITISH COLUMBIA  Tuesday, October 17, 2000

      7:33 a.m. "A group of Haida are on their way to Victoria this morning,
      to repatriate more of their ancestors." The Royal British Columbia
      Museum wrote to the Haida three weeks ago to tell them they had remains
      of twelve of their ancestors in storage. The Haida's repatriation
      process has been going on for about three years now. Andy Wilson is
      chairman of the Skidegate Repatriation Committee. He says in the past,
      they've been to Victoria and to UBC to collect bones and bring them
      home. Lately they've been further afield.

      WILSON: Just recently, about a month and a half ago, we went to Ottawa
      to get back 150 ancestral remains. And we've gotten some back from down
      as far as San Francisco, so it's an ongoing thing and the number gets
      higher and higher.

      Wilson says that number has reached about 250 so far. The Haida
      Committee is now planning a trip to New York and Chicago, where museums
      hold over 150 ancestral remains from the nation.
