University to return remains, items to First Nation

The University of Michigan's Museum of Anthropology is repatriating human remains and other items to the Whitefish River First Nation in Ontario.

The artifacts were taken from the First Nation 67 years ago. They include bones, copper kettles, iron knives and beads.

Universities and other institutions aren't required by law to repatriate remains and items to tribes out of the United States, but some are doing so.
