Kennewick Man, known as the Ancient One to Native Americans, has been the lightning rod for conflict between archaeologists and indigenous peoples in the United States.

A decade-long legal case pitted scientists against Native American communities and highlighted the shortcomings of the Native American Graves and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), designed to protect Native remains. In this volume, we hear from the many sides of this issue-archaeologists, tribal leaders, and others-as well as views from the international community.

The wider implications of the case and its resolution is explored.

Comparisons are made to similar cases in other countries and how they have been handled.

Appendixes provide the legal decisions, appeals, and chronology to allow full exploration of this landmark legal struggle.

An ideal starting point for discussion of this case in anthropology, archaeology, Native American studies, and cultural property law courses.
