Tribes recover American Indian artifacts

Nez Perce tribal members Larry Green and Nakia Williamson gather stolen artifacts returned to the tribe in a public ceremony at the U.S. Courthouse Thursday in Spokane. The Spokesman-Review reports the items turned over Thursday - recovered from the collection of Kenneth L. Milette of Newport - included arrowheads, necklaces and part of a jawbone. They were given to members of the Spokane, Colville, Coeur d'Alene and Nez Perce tribes.
