Army National Military Cemeteries (ANMC) is honoring the requests of three families from the Northern Arapaho Tribe to disinter the human remains of three Native American children from the Carlisle Barracks Post Cemetery, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The decedent names are Little Plume (aka Hayes Vanderbilt Friday), Little Chief (aka Dickens Nor), and Horse (aka Horace Washington). The decedents died in the early 1880s while attending the Carlisle Indian Industrial School. ANMC will disinter, transfer custody, transport, and reinter the remains in private cemeteries in Fremont County, Wyoming. This disinterment will be conducted in accordance with Army Regulation 210-190. This is not a Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) action because the remains are not part of a collection as they are interred in graves that are individually marked at the Carlisle Barracks Post Cemetery.
