Minnesota Indian Affairs Council works on proper burial of Native American remains
BEMIDJI, Minn.. – James Jones Jr. has some advice if you happen to stumble across human remains while you're cleaning out your dear old Aunt Agatha's attic: Don't panic.
Jones, cultural resource specialist with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council in Bemidji, says it's not that uncommon for human bones to show up in unexpected places.
"It happens more often than people think," he said. "We had a case where a family was going through an aunt's house after she went to a nursing home and they came across skeletal remains."
