PERHAM, Minn. (AP) – Authorities say human remains found near Perham appear to be the old remains of a Native American.
The sheriff’s office in Otter Tail County says little more is known about the person so far.
The remains were found Aug. 27 when a utility company digging along Big Pine Lake near Perham unearthed a human skull.
The state archaeologist office is collaborating with the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council to identify the remains.
Custody will eventually be transferred to the council.
