Indigenous remains returned 120 years after graves looted

Season 2023 Episode 343 | 4m 57s

A Native American tribe in Minnesota recently welcomed home five of its ancestors more than a century after their remains left the state. Their burial sites had been looted by a white landowner who took them to Connecticut and the remains sat in a basement until officials were able to reconnect them to the land and the tribe from where they came. Kaomi Lee of Twin Cities PBS reports.
