Kennewick Man a debate not easily put to rest

Physical anthropologists Karin Bruwelheide and Doug Owsley of the Smithsonian Institution discuss positioning of the Kennewick Man skeleton during the anatomical layout of the remains in 2006. Owsley has stirred controversy by claiming Kennewick Man was not an Indian and not from the Mid-Columbia region, and was admonished in April by the Army Corps of Engineers for not yet having published his research.
