Carlisle Barracks 'will be in support' of moving and re-burying at least 10 Native American children

 


Last week, the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Army promised to pay to move and re-bury the remains of at least 10 Native American children who died more than a century ago at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School.

“The U.S. Army believes that through ‘government to government’ consultations, all parties will address the legal requirements and familial connection required to support the requesting Tribes in bringing their family members back home,” according to Army Spokesman Dave Foster. “The executive director of the Army National Military Cemeteries is the approving agency for this action with support from numerous other agencies including various elements at Carlisle Barracks.”
