9400-year-old Kennewick Man was an Umatilla ancestor (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- Kennewick Man is a 9400-year-old human skeleton found along the Columbia River in Washington state. Oral tradition of the Umatilla tribe says that they had always inhabited that area, making Kennewick Man their ancestor, and requiring, under the 1990 Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, that his bones be returned to the Umatilla for reburial.

We have no disagreement with Talk Origins on this point, except for the age of Kennewick Man.
