Kennewick Man - Following the discovery of the skull, archaeologists were able to recover 350 other bones and fragments and dated the remains to be somewhere between 8,000 and 9,500 years old.  The remains were determined to be those of a male of late middle age and tall with a slender build.  Kennewick Man, as he has become known is one of the oldest and most complete skeletons ever found in North America. However, its significance doesn’t end there.

DNA profile ...DNA tests provide irrefutable proof of origin. This applies as well to the "Kennewick Man," who is now being tagged to be of Native-American descent, possibly heralding the end to a years-long debate between scientists and native tribes.
