DALLESPORT, WA -- Ancestral remains from the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation and the Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakima Nation are coming home, after more than a century overseas.


Three sets of remains were taken from the Columbia River Gorge in the 1880s, and taken to New Zealand. As part of a combined international effort, representatives from Warm Springs Cultural Resources traveled to the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch, NZ this week, to collect the remains. 


A repatriation and reburial ceremony will take place Saturday at the Wishxam Cemetery in Dallesport, Washington. It starts at 10 a.m., followed by a tribal meal at the Celilo Longhouse.
