Tribes bury ancestors at Mesa Verde National Park
Tuesday, April 25, 2006

The Hopi Tribe of Arizona led a tribal delegation in the reburial of more than 1,500 ancestors and nearly 5,000 funerary objects at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

The reburial ceremony took place at a private location within the park. The Hopi delegation spent about eight hours putting the remains and objects back into the ground.

The 24 tribes with ancestral, historical and cultural connections to the park agreed on the reburial. The remains and artifacts had been excavated from the park at various times between the 1890s and the 1990s.

It took 12 years for the process to be finalized.
