What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Unearthed bones should be returned, say Tribes Plans to send a recently uncovered skeleton of possible Indian origin to a museum in the East have Tribal officials concerned. The skeleton was found June 13 on private property near Columbia Falls, about 30 miles north of the Reservation boundary. The bones, along with dirt and charcoal from the site, and something being described as a ceremonial bead, have been sent to the state crime lab in Missoula for investigation before eventual delivery to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., according to news reports. If Pat Lefthand has his way, however, the bones and any accompanying artifacts will be turned over to the Tribes for reburial. “We’re not monkeys to be looked at” by curious white people, he told the Tribal Council June 18, asking for Council intervention into the matter. The Council learned about the discovery from published news reports. Had the remains been discovered on federal property, Tribal attorney John Carter told the Council, the Tribes would have a stronger claim over them. Because private ground was involved, the only applicable law might be the Indian Religious Freedom Act, he said. He added that the Flathead County sheriffs office was open to the idea of letting the Tribes’ cultural people take a look at the items taken from the site. The sheriff was “more than willing” to let Tribal representatives view the remains if the crime lab people were amenable, he said When that might happen was undetermined by press­ time. The fate of Lefthand’s desire to rebury the skeleton was also still in the air. It’s been something of a tradition with The Char-Koosta No pow wow program this y e a r that the issue before the Arlee pow wow featured a four- or eight-page mini pow wow program. Time got away with us this year, however, and we didn’t receive a mock-up version of what the pow wow committee has planned before we went to press, so we’re making do with what appears on our back page.
