Genome Of Controversial Skeleton Shows Relationship With Native American

The genome belonging to a well-known North American skeleton that is 8,500-years old, popular known as the Kennewick Man, indicates that there is a relationship between it and the Native American Tribe, a tribe that has been over the past decades been trying so hard to ensure that they bury his bones.

That said, the finding is also expected to rekindle a very long legal dispute that exists between researchers and the tribes who want to take the remains and bury while on the other hand researchers want to continue studying the bones. It's also good to note that the findings of this research has come when scientists have been working endlessly to ensure that they end the feud that exists between them and Native Americans by encouraging them to take part in the researches that they initiate. 

According to the University of Utah’s biological anthropologists, Dennis O’ Rourke, the dispute between the researchers and the Native Americans has impacted both sides. 

“The controversy surrounding the Native American bones has affected both the researchers and Native Americans,” he says adding that, “the whole issue has been very painful for both parties.”

Whether the dispute will rekindle with the new discovery is yet to be known but according to many analysts its highly likely that the Native Americans will work tirelessly so as to see to it that they have buried the bones.

“They will increase their efforts of ensuring that they bury bones especially now that they can be able to prove to some extent that the bones belongs to one of them,” Dennis O’ Rourke said.
